I'm terribly sorry to upload those boring test posts earlier. I just wanted to try out the new Blogger widget for Apple's Dashboard application.
The real order of business here is an idea I've been playing around with lately for my physiology students. I was finding it hard to verbally explain to students how to search for research articles for their presentations so I created something more user friendly in the form of a flow chart.
The idea is that there is not always a linear path from searching for an article, narrowing things down to a single article, and then obtaining a copy of that article. So instead you ask yourself questions along the way and based on your answers you progress down different paths until you arrive at an endpoint. Sometimes that endpoint is good (downloading an electronic PDF version of your article) and sometimes it is bad (going through PASCAL offsite storage to have a journal volume sent to you).
Enough babble, click here to visit the flow chart. Hopefully I've made things easier out here for a pimp...er...I mean physiology student!
