This is for the new graduate students who attended the library orientation session August 12 and were asking about this link: Research Olin Group Study Rooms. There was also a little discussion about the WUSTL mobile app which includes this and many other functions.
Register Now for Fall 2015 Research Studio Series. Each class this fall will be offered twice. Please let Ruth know if there are classes you would like us to create or scheduling preferences so we can add your suggestions into the Spring list of classes. Thanks.
A couple of discussions on Academia.edu which you may find interesting:
If the arXiv had referees, would conventional journal publications still make sense?
How many arXiv papers are uploaded in their final (refereed) versions? (My observations are that WU math dept. authors who post preprints on arXiv do not usually go back and post the final published version even when that is allowed by their publishers; my speculation is this is because final published versions take so long, because they are generally available to folks who need them, and because authors have a lot of uncertainty about what is and is not allowed.)
Cindy Traub has joined the staff of Olin Library as a Data Specialist. Cindy has a PhD in mathematics from WU; she will be working with faculty, students and library staff to better understand research data, data analytics and visualization.

Quiz: Can you navigate tricky peer review scenarios? 10 question quiz; although posted on a BioMed Central blog, I think several of the questions probably relate to peer review in mathematics also. When you pick the wrong answer, an explanation pops up so it's a nice learning tool. Check it out!
