There is so much that the GT library can do for you, from providing research materials to assistance with data visualization to patent guidance. However, rather than trying to guess what you want from us, this year we asked!  Based on the response to a short ranking survey I sent out last month, this session will cover: 1. How to find grants, fellowships, and travel money with the sponsorship database, Pivot. There are opportunities for postdocs and non US citizens too!2. How to use MathSciNet. We will cover navigating its classification index to actually getting the article you want. 3. How to find and download articles from our systems, Google Scholar, and from other libraries. And if we have time:  4. How to make a poster and cheaply print it.
