Training Materials

  • Best practices:
    • Mark your document right from the start!  So that even the draft reads “JPL/Caltech Business Discreet,” or whichever marking is appropriate.
    • If you must share your slidedecks, we strongly urge you to share in PDF format and without your notes!
    • Link to a restricted information documents via email, etc.; do not attach the document!  Easiest way to keep restricted access documents restricted.
  • Marking & Handling Overview presentation slides
  • Overview one-pager
  • Marking and Handling and Subcontractors presentation slides
  • The required training to access SBU materials is available on JPL’s Learning Management System. To access the training:

ASME Digital Collection: Trial Access

April 4th, 2016

During the month of April, JPL Library has a trial access to the Digital Collection from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). This is a great opportunity for not only mechanical engineers, but everyone at JPL to take a look at the content provided by ASME, and see how it fit with our work.

Click here to access the ASME Digital Collection.

There are three main sections within the Digital Colleciton:

Your feedback and comments are important in determining which resources we would continue to provide after the trial period. Please send your comments to library@jpl.nasa.gov with a subject “ASME Digital Collection.”  Or you can leave your comments here below.

The Many Faces of Geometry

March 11th, 2016

Here is a sampling of books on geometry from JPL Library’s electronic book collection.

All ebooks can be accessed and downloaded from within the JPL network. Our licenses with the publishers prevent further re-distribution, so if you would like to recommend your colleagues to read any of the ebooks, please ask them to download a copy themselves. For questions and comments, please contact the JPL Library Reference Desk at library@jpl.nasa.gov, ext 4-4200, or leave a comment here.

Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

March 8th, 2016

Do you know who was Augusta Ada Byron? Valentina Tereshkova? Ruby Payne-Scott? Do you want to encourage more women in science and technology fields? March is Women’s History Month. Here is a list of electronic books on women in science, technology and leadership.  They can be downloaded and moved to your mobile devices for personal reading. If you want to recommend some of these books to your colleagues, please ask them to download the books themselves.

There are additional printed books on women in the various scientific and technology fields, and leadership and management skills for women in the workplace.  Come to the Hub (111-104) to see a current display and check out the books.

JPL Stories Presents:

Going out in a blaze of glory: Cassini’s Grand Finale

Presented by: Dr. Linda Spilker, Cassini Project Scientist

Wednesday, May 18, 2016, 4:00-5:00 PM

@ the HUB, Building 111-104

Plunging into Saturn’s atmosphere at 74,000 mph the Cassini mission will end in a blaze of glory in the fall of 2017 rather than risk crashing into one of Saturn’s ocean-bearing worlds and potentially contaminating it. Cassini’s long mission has enabled some remarkable discoveries, and more are expected when Cassini repeatedly dives between the innermost ring and the top of Saturn’s atmosphere during its final six months. What new adventures await Cassini during its dramatic final act? What puzzles will Cassini solve before its fiery end? Come and hear the story of recent discoveries and how Cassini’s fast-paced, science-intensive “Grand Finale” will be like a whole new mission.

The last fifteen years has be en a golden
age for space exploration. JPL launched
more than 20 missions and presently
operates 19 JPL missions. The outlook
for the next decade is even more exciting
and challenging. How did all of this happen?
Come get the inside scoop.

April 25, 2:00-5:00, JPL WIRED Edit-a-thon: Postponed

March 21st, 2016

This event has been postponed. Please check back for new date.

You may show up and leave this event any time during this three-hour period. This is a hands-on event, so please bring laptops, if you have them, in order to actively contribute to WIRED.

Have you ever wanted to learn about something at JPL, but could not find the information? Have you ever thought about contributing to JPL’s collective knowledge, but don’t know how?
 
JPL WIRED is a shared knowledge resource envisioned to serve as JPL’s Wikipedia, covering both general and technical topics. With over 1,800 articles and counting, WIRED is the place to go for finding and contributing information. We’ve recently made some major upgrades, and the WIRED Steering Committee is taking advantage of the drastic increase in usability to expand the benefits of WIRED to all JPL employees.
 
However, this initiative cannot be realized by only a few individuals – we need your help! Come to the Edit-a-thon and become a part of this community. There will be various stations, ranging from tutorials of using JPL Wired to specific content area station where like-minded individuals can add or improve contents in the area of their interests. 

This event is presented by the Wired Steering Committee, representing Division 35, the Office of the Chief Engineer, and the Library and Archives Group.
