[Welcome to the webinar. You have entered as an attendee and listen only mode.]

>> I am designated as your librarian. So if you have been in the library may be of seen my face so we have pictures posted in a couple places. So I just wanted to say quick hello, give a face to the voice. I am going to turn off my video camera. But if you need close captioning, the link is available in the chat box. Should see the link available there if you don't please let me know in chat. Or in questions. I will try and keep an eye on the questions box during this presentation. I don't expect to have a huge crowd so I should be able to make sure I am following up during the presentation. If it is a little bit more of an extensive question I might wait until the end just so I know we have enough time.

From here, today's agenda and I will go ahead and start from this PowerPoint which I should say the PowerPoint will be available and there will be a follow-up email and there will be a link with the attachment the PowerPoint that you can download. I did not try to put in the webinar since it is usually hit or miss as to whether the actual document will be available or if it will be easily downloadable so it directs students to our website with an actual hard copy of it to download there tomorrow.

Our agenda for today, as far as researching tips for the DIT entity be a management we will review the scope and purpose of the literary review, looking at the hook and anchor, choosing a topic based on the literature which is what we call grounding the literature and then modeling off of other studies and dissertations. At any point time you want me to slow down or repeat what I've said please put that in questions box and I will happily do whatever it is they need me to do. To be able to follow the instruction I am providing. We are also going to look at how to stay organized. We see the example of the search locket I will show an image of how that works. We will look at specific databases that will be key to your research. We will spend a little bit of time on Google scholar and while in the databases and maybe Google scholar I will be asking for a question or a research topic so if you have a research topic that you would like me to demo the ready to put that the questions boxlike and give it a shot. Otherwise I have a default search in the back my mind, I have so many that students come up with.

The scope and purpose of your literary review is really there to make a case for your own research and it highlights the gap in the research and I should note that the gap in the literature you are not meant to fill the entire gap. You are just adding to, you are adding to the conversation, the academic conversation about this because you cannot fill in every single geographic location or demographic. There is too much out there so you are finding your own niche with this gap. And then looking at the literature that is already out there if you have a research topic in mind so if you have a problem statement that you are thinking about generally I suggest going out into the database, into Google scholar and see what is out there so you know you are basing your research question off of what is already been published. I'm going to come back to this further down the road. We are going to talk about the problem statement and a little bit about the research.

As I was saying earlier especially when it comes down to your hook and anchor it is easier to find something that will work for your problem statement and will and anchor if you keep an open mind. Start with the general area of interest. Find some articles that really stick with you, look for data statistics that are of interest and go from there. There is only so much statistics and data that the government, any government, US, European, African, it does not matter there's only so much data that they can collect and then the rest of it you are going to have to try and find in peer-reviewed literature. So if you ever get stuck with that, you can always reach out to the library and we are more than welcome to help you with your research and once I get through my spiel here about the literature review itself. I will show you how to contact the library and make an appointment with me. We have an example here and try not to work off of your own assumptions about where you work or maybe two copies that you are aware of because -- it does not mean it is an universal problem and this example is a great one. The company just laid off a bunch of CPAs maybe there is not enough jobs for CPAs but maybe that is not the truth. Maybe it is just in that specific company. So keep in mind if you have an area of interest like this if you are looking at career paths or a specific kind of career and availability or employment and specific kind of industry keep an open mind and look in the databases and look at Google scholar.

One of the other things that comes up in my appointments a lot is students will have a very specific statistic they are looking for. They have already made up their minds that X industry makes X amount of money per year because of X, Y, and Z and maybe they have found supporting literature but cannot find that specific data points. And that is a tough corner to put yourself into because you don't know if it is out there and you don't know if it is out there in the way you expected to be out there. It is like a needle in a haystack where there may be no needle so keep in mind that when you are looking for the hook and anchor keep an open mind, keep notes about what you found and things that might work for you.

We have talked about this a little bit, too. Keep an eye out for things that are interesting, that shock you or things that you think might work further down the road when you spend more time with the literature. So that is kind of what we consider to be literature that you have spent all this time seeing what is out there and basing your problem statement off of that and finding a hook and anchor that come from the research that you have done already instead of assuming beforehand that you're going to find it. So I'm going to go ahead and exit out of the presentation.

I will come back to it and I want to show you the search log that we have available or the example that we have but I want to show you a couple of key services that the library provides. Let me head into the library main page. First I want to point out our ask a librarian button. You have four different ways to contact us. You can email, chat. If you call us you're going to have to leave a message and we will get back to you via email. For these three serfs, well for email and phone we will get back to within 24 hours or at least we do our best to do that. The term starts, specifically fall, does get very busy and we might fall a little bit outside of the 24 hour range but usually it is very close to that or a lot shorter than 24 hours. We do have our chat hours posted with the days and times Eastern standard Time. And if you would like to talk to me specifically about your research topic I do 30 minute appointments via phone or we could do Skype for business. So actually the reason I have limited hours here for the rest of the month is that I am going to the Phoenix residency and I have other things going on as well but if you do not see a date and time that work for you please feel free to email me directly and let me know and I can do my best to fit you in, we can work out a time and date that works for both of us. I can only do so much as far as availability but I will do my best to work with you. I do that all the time so don't be shy about emailing me. Students do it weekly so it is not a big deal. Back to the library main page. The other thing I want to point out, if you are in the library and maybe it is the middle of the night and you are not sure where to start or maybe you want to learn more about a specific topic, if you click on search everything you can come in here and enter a particular topic keyword, whatever it is you're looking for. In this case I'm going to do peer review and you are searching everything. I will explain with the other option is called Thoreau database option. Gives our website contact that discusses peer review. Quick answers with instruction and more links and more instruction related to that topic. And you’ll see on the right-hand side here are Thoreau multi-database search. I want to clear up any confusion that may come from Thoreau. Thoreau searches all of our databases simultaneously. It searches 60% of our databases very well. The other 40% not as well and that has to do with the database vendors. They don't like to play nice with each other sometimes so you are not going to do all of your research in Thoreau. I will open up so you can see what this looks like.

You will see search Thoreau at Walden University. That will become more obvious when you spend time with databases. It will always notify what database you are in. This EBSCO logo will become familiar. There's nothing wrong with coming into Thoreau and searching from this main search bar. If you are not sure what database to dig into there is two things I point out about that. Thoreau itself is specific to a Walden so a lot of academic libraries will have a main search function on the front page of their website that makes it easier for patron students to be able to get into there and find what they are looking for without having to figure out which resource to start with. So it is not there for extensive literature research it is there to help you figure out where to start. While you are searching Thoreau as part of your literature review you will be discussing which databases you used and what keywords you used. If you are as part of your lit review discussing Thoreau nobody outside of Walden is going to know what that is. Thoreau is just a pet name for this particular database search. Just because it has to do with Walden. Keep it in mind. It is okay to start in there. Maybe you will find a resource for databases you had not initially expected. So it is okay. I just want to clarify that before anybody starts to dig deep into that resource in the library.

Generally I suggest students start the business and management research homepage. I want to point out the difference. This search bar and the main search bar on the library homepage are different. This search bar is set up to search business and management journals in all of our databases simultaneously so your results are going to be more specific. Same thing if you change it to information technology and systems or psychology. This is, if you do not want to get swamped by Thoreau's results and your topic specific to business and management you don't get is overwhelmed by your results but again you're not going to come here and do all of your literary review through this main search bar but it is an okay place to start especially since it will guide you through which databases you found your resources and you might go from there. Maybe you will spend more time in the database you had not expected. The other question I get a lot is which databases the best? My answer to that is always depends on what your topic is. If you are just doing, if you have a topic that has to do with leadership, you're going to spend a lot of time in our business and management databases. These are all business specific. Sage multidisciplinary. Although sage and science director both going to have a very decent amount of business and management journals. Each one of these databases has different journals. Different resources and they may have a little bit of overlap that happens sometimes -- but one has access from 1995-present while the other has access from 1972 so it really depends on the collection and what we are able to subscribe to within that particular database.

I want to point out the other resources before we run a search in here. I want to point out a couple of other things that might be useful. We have company profile and industry report databases. If you want to look at market research this is a great database although the content is very broad so if you're looking for a specific kind of company or something that is a little more niche you may want to start broad. Guide star is excellent if you're looking at nonprofits. Market share reporter especially if you are looking for industry data,. LEXIS-NEXIS is similar. You're going to find a lot of company profiles. Reference USA is a great resource if you want to know more about industries or businesses in a specific geographical location. These are all really great databases. They all have their own options.

The other thing is there is a literature review accordion. If you click on it these different sections will take you to our capstone literature review guide which is very extensive. You can always come back here and Peru's some information linked through here because a lot, the content we are covering today a lot of it is going to be covered in this particular guide. With more information. The scope of literature review, looking for full text in the library and outside of the library, we have a statistics and data accordion so if you want to know more about looking for data and statistics inside and outside of the library that is an excellent resource. Looking for tests and measures, theories, upcoming webinars. I will be teaching an introduction to business and IT statistics research on Thursday and then I think it is the week following that I will be doing an introduction to business and IT theory research. You're more than welcome to attend either of those of interest you.

You also see on the left-hand side here that you have the option to go to ask a librarian. Look at our quick answers and then scheduling a doctoral appointment which you can do just the same as under ask a librarian. So from here, let's go ahead and open up business source complete.

Does anybody have a research topic they would like me to cover or try researching as an example? I will get you a second. I am going to open up another tab. I am not seeing anything. A topic that comes up a lot is employee turnover. I'm going to use that as an example. You will see by my predetermined keywords I have here that I do this search a lot. Maybe in different ways into areas and industries to help students with research. Is a very popular topic. I suggest that you uncheck full text which will show you everything that is in this database even if we don't have access to it. It will give you the option to go to full text in our other databases if it is available even if we don't have access you will still be able to request it through a document delivery service which is something I will show you once we have an example. And make sure you check peer-reviewed scholarly journals. And then you are also going to he would like to you could change your date. You could put in 2013 to narrow your date range if you would like. Before I do that I generally tell students to start with everything see what is out there and narrow your dates. We have a lot here. Which is great, 6100. This goes back over 100 years. If you like to look at something more current you could change it. Let's go 2013 now we are at about 1700. One thing I point out is to look at the subject terms when you look at the articles themselves. When you look at the abstracts. They have labor turnover here instead of employee turnover status something you could add as part of your search. We could say employee or labor and then turnover. The other thing to keep an eye on his you may want to look at retention because if you focus on retaining your employees you don't have to worry about turnover quite as much. So we can say and you will see those are already prebuilt in there. I also, you could look at engagement or employee satisfaction, employee loyalty, there is a lot of terms you could start to add. Notice I am putting in "or" between these terms which tells the database to look for either term. And you will see there is an "and" that goes between the two. You are looking for articles that talk about employee turnover or employee retention, employee engagement and vice versa for labor. Labor turnover, labor retention, labor engagement. We are at 1700 as of now. And by adding in those search terms it has expanded our results. There is a lot of different ways to expand results if you feel like you are hitting a wall. Ake sure you keep an eye on different search terms that you have used and find related once. Make a list of all these terms based on the different subtopics you are researching. Let's go ahead and open up one of these articles. I want to point out that while in here you can grab the citation of the article, click on site and scroll down you'll see the APA citation here. While grabbing those records keep in mind they are not perfect. They are giving about 80-90% of the way. You will need to go into the APA manual and make sure they are correct but they are there for your reference. We will hopefully find a couple of examples about without full text.

I'm going to open up this article. You don't even need to open it up. That's fine. Notice there is not a PDF full text link here and let's find one of those so you have a frame of reference what that looks like. You see this find and Walden button in your results list click on it and if you are interested in that article of course and you will see that it takes you to a middle page where you're going to access the database that that article is in so it is saying it is in Emerald's management, give it a try, click on the link here and it should open up the article in full text. It does not always get it right. I would say it's it right at least 70-80% of the time. The background software does not always come is not always able to match up the content in the databases so if that happens you can always email us the citation and we can help you find full text. But you might not have initially found this article without unchecking full text. So this particular article if you wanted full text of it and this is just an example we might be able to find it in a different database in the library. I'm going to click on site again and go down to the APA section and you don't have to grab the APA citation for this but it probably makes it easier. From the Walden library home page click on services and then go to document delivery service. If you have used interlibrary loan at a public library this is very similar except everything is electronic so click on document delivery service. This gives you an overview of what document delivery service is and how it works. There is a 7-10 day turnaround so it is not a next day service. Keep that in mind. And there is a 30 article per lifetime limit. Students hardly ever reach that Max. You can always email us first to see if we are able to find full text for you before you come in to DDS to request it. Sign in, give us your information, and then once you have done that you will submit a request for the article that you found and then once that is complete and the article is available you will be notified via email and then come back to the DDS link, sign in and grab a PDF. I tell students a lot and I try and repeat this at least two or three times, go in there, grab that PDF and save it. Save it at least more than one location because it is going to disappear after 30 days. So save it on your hard drive, in your 03 61 Drive picnic you have a JumpDrive use or an external hard drive. Make sure you are backing up your resources see don't have to request that article again because it will count as another tick against the article lifetime limit.

We will use this as an example but I want to show you how to verify peer review. From my resources go to Ulrichs and grab the journal title because the journal was actually peer-reviewed. I am copying that in. Ulrich's has gone through and verified all these journals peer review process to figure out whether it lives up to our academic standards. Once you hit search it will take you there church that particular journal title. Even before we requested this particular article we want to verify it is peer-reviewed. We checked peer-reviewed in the database we are probably safe but humans make mistakes and things happen. Is always best to double check all your resources. So we were looking at strategic management Journal. You see it is listed here three times. That is not a problem. Is just telling you there are three different versions. There is print, electronic and I cannot see with this third one is but benz completely normal. The thing you're looking out for is this referee jacket. It looks like for a referee uniform. That is the way of confirming that this particular journal is peer-reviewed. So if you wanted to use this particular article it would be fine. The only time that would not be true is if it is an editorial note, a lit review, a book review, something along that line that is not actually primary research. But if you are ever curious about that or you're not sure you can always email us something that does come up sometimes the students will come in here, run a search and there will not be a referee jacket but maybe they went to the journal homepage and the Journal said yes we are peer-reviewed but just like the rest of the Internet, you are free to write whatever you would like on your website and maybe they would go through a peer review process that does not mean that it is up to our standards. So I always tell students the Ulrich's is going to be your point of reference for any of that, any of your peer-reviewed options so when you come here if it does not say peer review then it is not peer-reviewed. If it does say it is than it is peer-reviewed. If you don't see the journal in here you can notify us and let us know. Generally we reach out to Ulrichs and say this is not referenced in your directory can you find out what the process is and find out whether they should be listed as peer-reviewed or not. In the meantime we generally suggest students consider that journal that is not indexed as not peer-reviewed just for your own safety is the wrong word. Just say do not end up citing something that is not end up being peer-reviewed even though it was not listed. I don't see any questions about Ulrichs.

Let's go back here. Let's go back to that main page one more time. I want to show two different items the database can do that are very helpful. The first one is search history and this is an example of what I was discussing with the search and let's find that PowerPoint slide. There we go. Here is a sample search log. When we go back in the database will look familiar. Is a similar set up. Basically while in the databases is helpful to keep notes about which databases you used, the different keywords are used, the results you got and any notes you want to take but it. You don't have to do every single one but it is helpful for you to make sure that you are not repeating your same searches over and over again for you to have reference for how well previous searches worked. What keywords worked in a particular database and which ones did not work in a particular database and then further down the road when you are actually writing your lit review you have notes about what worked and did not so you have a frame of reference as opposed to having to think back about the months of research you did and the way you did your research and the databases. So there is a lot of reasons to keep a search log barely not repeating your research and being able to explain what research you did in your lit review is very helpful. And I want to explain you don't have to, you're not going to reiterate every single search you ran and the database, every single keyword you used but it is there for the reader to understand that you are proficient researcher and you know what resources are out there and how to use them.

The search history option looks similar to the search log. If you don't want to have to copy and paste or type in everything in Excel spreadsheet you can, after you have spent a few hours in the database you can print on search history and you can print that off or you can highlight this and copy and paste into a spreadsheet. Whatever works best for you. It does show you all the keywords you used, any limiters you used and the database you used. It can save you time. The other nice thing about the search history function is that if two searches ago there was an article you were interested in but now you cannot remember what it was called and which circuit was in, you can go back to a previous search by clicking on review results and now you are back to that initial 5400 articles and maybe it was the second one and now you can save that article and move forward again in your search history he would like.

Let's click on this one. Maybe you spent, you can get sucked into the databases for a good chunk of time. Maybe you have been in the databases for a few hours you have tweaked and changed and finally got to that perfect search results list and you don't want to have to run it again. You want to just keep up-to-date on any articles that would fall under that results list until you are done. So you can click on share and then on email alert. The first step for this beyond running your search and finding the perfect search is creating a personal account in databases. In this case you are going to be creating a personal account in EBSCO. Use whatever email address you would like. Is completely your profile. The library does not have access to it so there's any issues of troubleshooting things we won't be able to see it because we cannot login as you. But once you have logged in, created an account you can choose the frequency of how often you would like to be notified, how recent the articles have to be and what kind of format you want. Any time a certain amount of articles based on your frequency and when you want the articles to be published, when the articles go into or added into the database and would be viewable under this search that you ran and saved here an email will be sent to the account that you set it up with and all those articles will be listed with a link into the database to that particular article. It saves time and energy she were not happy to come back and rerun the research every few weeks to see if there is something new out there. Saves you time. If you want there is also an RSS link here. Some people really love those. Some don't. Give it a try if you want to do the email alerts you can try it.  If you want to do the RSS feed give that a shot.

One last thing to point out is if you go under choose databases you have the option of searching more than one database at a time. This function will only be available in ProQuest and ECSCO because they have so many different subjects they provide for us. The others are specific to the database. Since we are looking at employee turnover we may be able to look at our psychology database because it has to do with the reasoning behind people's actions. Maybe psychology might be a good place to add. We can add academic search complete which is a multi-topic database. Click on okay and we will have to check those again. It clears your limiters when you do that. Click search. By adding in psych info we have added a lot to. I think, let's go back to our original date range. 2013. You have added in a lot of results. Keep in mind if your research topic falls into IT or health or communication, feel free to add more than one database. While in here will tell you which database came from. This one came from psych info so maybe there is a lot more in psych info than maybe what you had thought there might be. Looks like we got back to business source complete. So the databases have a lot of different options. If you have any questions about than you can always reach out to the library. We are happy to discuss them with you. Or you can make an appointment with me and we can spend time discussing research strategies for your particular topic.

Hopefully you had a chance to look at completed dissertations but I will open this up. From the main change click on dissertations and we have two different dissertations databases. We have Walden specific and then global. Walden of course is just going to be Walden alumni were completed doctoral dissertations. And the global option is everybody. If you want to research, see what other students from Walden have done could come in here and say DBA or DIT and we will say this as a degree. To do a degree specific search you say DBA or DIT in this case you are just doing the degree title and you change this drop-down and since our topic was on employee turnover notice I am putting this in quotation marks and that searches for that exact phrase. Is not going to break it apart. It will not let it be in different order. Is that exact phrase. And you can change the dates but maybe we will hold off on that. Let's open up this first one from 2017 so is pretty new. Nice thing about that is you can come in, take a look at how they completed their doctoral study. Look at their review of the professional literature and maybe I will open that up before we move on. They show you which degree they completed. A little bit about their research and open up the full text. Let's get down to their content list. There it is. Here is their basic review of the professional and academic literature and everybody has a little bit different way of breaking this apart. I have seen ones, this one is pretty specific and a little bit shorter. But some people have 15-20 topics so everybody does it look differently. Come in here and see how they broke it apart. Look at the theory they used, how do they incorporate that theory? What are the other things that they did in here? The other thing I generally suggest is look at the references. If you are looking for a particular theory or just want to find articles relevant to your topic there's nothing wrong with looking at the references that they have used. That might be of interest, it might help you find other articles that maybe would not have initially thought of. Because you're going to be talk about the many different way. May be a research topic is different so there's nothing wrong with looking at references. The same goes with looking at references in peer-reviewed articles especially if they are newer. And if you are researching theory this can be helpful because it will help you narrow down who this author is and they will more than likely have cited it which they should have if they were doing their job right and that can save you some time. But if you want to come into the global thesis option you can search on your topic to see if anybody else has done a dissertation or doc study on your particular topic which is handy. The other thing is if you are looking for, if you are not sure where to go with a particular research topic a lot of doctoral studies will say suggestions for future research and that Mike if you an idea of what you could do based off of that person's previous research. How would they have changed it? What might they research the future? What would they change it to or what could they have done? That would be a useful resource.

Maybe we will go into the actual location in our literature review guide and I want to show you a couple things that we have in there for staying organized. Before we do that I'm going to have to go into Google scholar which is It is free you do not have to go through the library. Just go to the URL. You will see I am putting in quotation marks again and I will show you what the differences between quotation marks and not quotation marks. The reason you don't do all of your research in Google scholars because you are going to in a lot of cases get overwhelmed by results and does not limit to peer review. We are at 85,000 results just on employee turnover loan so we did not have in quotation marks, the 85,000, we are at 716,000. So it does help you find more relevant content. Depends on what you are researching. Usually two or three words is enough unless you're looking for an exact title of an article. Any longer than that it really will narrow down your results really quickly. Some features of Google scholar you can limit your date range so maybe want to see articles or books or content from 2014-recent. You can see there are books in here, articles. You will find dissertations, patents, all sorts of stuff you might even find some government literature. Anything you are pulling from here make sure you go to Ulrichs and make sure is peer-reviewed.

In my Google scholar results list you will see this find at Walden link at the right-hand side. You can set up Google scholar to search the Walden Library databases and I will walk through how that works. The upper left-hand corner you will see three horizontal bars. Click on them and from that list click on settings and from this list on the left-hand side click on library links and in the search bar type in Walden. You don't have to do Walden University. We are the only Walden out there so it will pop up for us. What you have typed in Walden click the search bar and then you will see Walden University library it will pop up. If you are in the United States you will see open world. If you are outside of the United States you might not see that resource. You might see something else instead. If it is already pre-checked leave it that way. Same thing for open world cat, Leave it checked. Make sure you check Walden University library and hit save.

I want to go back to our original search without the date range limited to 2014. We have 85,000 results and the nice thing about having this broader results list is you are going to get a more applicable relevance ranking and in this case this first article is from 1977 so obviously it is outside of your date range but it has been cited 3100 times. Maybe that is an important article to read. Maybe you won't end up using it but it is an important article to review and if you want to see who cited it since it has been published click on cited by 3177 or whatever the number is that is listed there. If this is a really important article and people are citing it you can see who cited it and base it off of your own research so maybe from this list since we have so many we want to narrow it down to the last year and now we are down to 240 of articles, books, etc. that have cited that original article since it is been published. Maybe we want to make this specific -- see if there something in marketing. And then we are down to 106 which is a lot more reasonable to sift through than 3200. It really depends on how you want to narrow your results and what you want to look for. This whole process of clicking on cited by is actually called citation chaining. I look at it as moving forward in time. When you come to Google scholar and click on the cited by. You're looking at everything from 1977 to present. The other way you could do this is if you had an article from 2018, 2017, 2016 and you look at the references and you could find articles still within your date range that are older. You could go forwards and backwards in time and citation chaining can help you uncover some articles that might not have popped up initially in your searches. That might help you find some more popular authors as well. Just like the database, Google scholar has the option to create an alert. Say we want to find articles from 2018 just the newest ones and this is just an example. Click on create an alert you'll see it has the subject term that we used. Enter an email address you would like and then create alert and so any time an article is added to this search results list you will be emailed with the links to those articles or at least the results list to the articles. Make sure you do this with a shorter results list if it is like 5 million will be getting a lot of emails. Thankfully is very easy to unsubscribe so it is not a big deal. It is easier if you have a shorter results list.

Now that we have Walden library linked to the Google scholar we have defined at Walden on the right-hand side, make sure you are clicking on the slings of the right-hand side instead of the actual title of the article. The title the article about 90% of the time is going to take you to the publisher and publishers going to say login and we can give you access. That is not work because it is not proxy through our servers so you're going to have to go in through this link which is presets it ups you can go right into our databases. If you click on the title it will say use your username and password which will not work and they will say we can give you this article for a fee and we don't why you should do that because we already have access or even if you don't you can request it through document delivery service.

This find that Walden option and sometimes this happens, too. This is a good example. When you click on this find at Walden sometimes this happens it is no results found. I would say we might still have this article. The background software that talks to Google scholar and to our databases don't always match up so might not have this article or we might have it. You can always email that citation to us directly and we can help you find full text. And then you will often see this PDF or HTML option that is just an open source link that is freely available on the web. The Walden library does not have any control over it. Doesn't belong to us but it is there for you if you want to give it a try and try and access full text. Any questions about Google scholar?

I know it is a lot of steps to memorize. Once this webinar is completed we will follow-up with you tomorrow there will be a recording of the webinar, some links about stuff we covered today and again a link to the PowerPoint for you to access. Just click on it and it goes to one of our guides and you can download the PowerPoint from there. And after the webinar is complete you will have the option to fill out a survey. I definitely welcome you to fill out the survey. I love feedback, positive or negative or critical, does not matter. I like hearing what I can do better or what you would like to see covered. I want to make sure I am constantly improving. So we have about eight minutes left. I am not seeing any questions pop up but if you do have some feel free after the webinar maybe tomorrow morning or something after you've had time to think you can always email me directly. You can email the library. I don't see anything popping in but thank you so much for attending this evening depending on what time of the day or what times on your in morning afternoon or evening. Thank you so much for attending and hopefully I will see you at another webinar and reach out to the library to need us. Thank you again.
