BioData Club is a co-learning community at OHSU. A partnership of the OHSU Library and DMICE, we host monthly workshops on data science and open science skills, tools, and best practices. Everyone is welcome to attend.
A personal website can serve as a flexible hub for presenting your work, accomplishments, and research interests, but where do you start? In this BioData Club virtual workshop, you will learn how to create a website with Github Pages, utilize best practices for sharing your academic contributions, and edit and format content in Markdown. At the end of the session, you will have a site up and running and know how to edit it for future use!
Research Communication and Scholarly Impact
The OHSU Library hosts workshops to help students, early career researchers, and faculty understand and implement tools and strategies for sharing their work, measuring and communicating their scientific impact, and building a professional network.
Workshop topics include writing an effective professional bio, using social media, high impact publishing, creating a personal professional website, and data sharing. The workshops are free and open to all OHSU community members.
Please contact Robin Champieux, Director of Education, Research & Clinical Outreach with questions or workshop requests.

EndNote or other library-led workshops are provided on a by-request basis.
If you are interested in having a librarian teach information management using EndNote or teach another topic, please Contact Us at the OHSU Library and indicate your name, email and the names of at least 3 other people you know who are interested in this training. The OHSU Library requires at least 4 people to sign up for a class. A librarian will contact you to set up a time and place convenient for you and your group.
The information management/EndNote class can be set up to be delivered within 60 minutes if your group just wants a brief overview, or within 90 minutes if your group wants some opportunity to work hands-on.
If your group has chosen to do a more hands-on focused session, participants will need to bring their laptops with EndNote already installed. See our instructions for How to Get EndNote.
The information management/EndNote workshop covers the basics of information management using EndNote, a citation software used to manage citations in personal libraries and to create bibliographies based on a number of available journal or writing styles.
- Reflect on broader aspects of information management
Where to go for search strategy/information management help
Where to go for technical help with EndNote
- Build and start organizing a basic EndNote Library
- Use the EndNote functions in Microsoft Word to create a bibliography
Note: If you are an OHSU distance student and would like to have this instruction, please let us know via the Contact Us page. If we can get at least four (4) people to agree to a date and time for a remote version of this class we can hold one of these sessions online.
