Jeff Lacy is the primary contact for anything library-related for the faculty, students, and staff of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the School of Dentistry. He can assist the community with navigating libraries and research databases, conducting literature reviews, applying the principles of evidence-based practice, citing publications, using reference managers like Zotero or Endnote, managing research data, finding outlets for publication, and identifying predatory publishers, and more!
Tip From Jeff: Get an Author ID. An author ID profile allows you maintain a clear and comprehensive publication record in one place. This is particularly useful when applying for grants or looking for collaborators. ORCID and ResearcherID are probably the most common.
