The UAB Libraries 10 Minute Talks series is intended to provide detailed information on specific topics in a short amount of time to better serve the scheduling needs of busy faculty, researchers, and students. These sessions will provide information on specific topics related to research activities and will include information on relevant UAB Libraries resources. The Spring 2018 series from Lister Hill Libraries will focus on types of reviews with the goal of providing information on publication alternatives to systematic reviews.

For a list of the upcoming talks and the online registration links, visit our Research Guide.

"How Many People Have Read Your Abstract? An Introduction to Altmetrics" is the topic of the next UAB Libraries online workshop. You can sign up to take this class on Thursday, February 8, from 12:00-1:00 pm, or Wednesday, February 21, from 5:30-6:30 pm.

Altmetrics can be used to provide information on the impact of research and scholarly activity in addition to traditional measures such as citation count, h-index, and journal impact factor. This workshop will provide an introduction to altmetrics and to the resources for obtaining alternative metrics that are currently available through UAB Libraries.

In a ceremony in the auditorium of the Engineering Building [Cudworth Hall], UAB commemorated the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In a ceremony in the auditorium of the Engineering Building [Cudworth Hall], UAB commemorated the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The event was held during the ten-year anniversary of King’s assassination.  The keynote speaker, Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker (seated third from left), was the chief-of-staff for Dr. King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.  Funding for the event was provided by the UAB student government and graduate student associations.

UAB celebrated Black History Week as early as 1975 with a series of lectures, dances, and art shows.  Following national trends, UAB changed to a month-long celebration in 1977.

One of the greatest figures in modernist literature, Irish author James Joyce (1882-1941) used the avant-garde “stream of consciousness” method in such great literary works as Ulysses (1922), A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916), and Finnegan’s Wake (1939). Less known is that from his mid-20s on, Joyce also suffered grievously from eye disease and other ailments, the cause of which may have been either syphilis or some form of inflammatory rheumatic arthritis. An ongoing debate continues as scholars investigate Joyce’s medical history and pick apart Ulysses for references to venereal disease.
