Center maintains a set of resources that support cognitive science-related
research on the campus.
Every week, the Center distributes electronically and by hardcopy
a listing of cognitive science-related events upcoming locally over
the next month or so. A number of CogSci-affiliated departments
announce their presentations and workshops in this listing, which
has become the campus's main centralized source for such information.
In addition, the Center regularly distributes over e-mail information
that comes to it on cognitive science-related conferences, job announcements,
grant possibilities, and the like.
Collation of Cognitive Science-Related Courses
advance of the start of each semester, the Center distributes widely
over campus a collation of all the cognitive science-related courses
that will be offered in that upcoming semester. This list helps
students interested in cognitive science to select their courses.
In the collation process, the Center also alerts different departments
of any conflicts in their course scheduling.
Technical Reports Series
The Center publishes
a series of research and technical reports that presents recent work
by Center faculty members and some selected student papers or dissertations
pertaining to cognitive science.
updated series listing is periodically distributed for those wishing
to purchase research reports of interest to them, and the Center
maintains an arrangement with several other cognitive science facilities
for a mutual exchange of technical report series.
The Center library,
located in a portion of the conference room, contains a sizable and
increasing collection of materials pertaining to cognitive science.
collection includes a substantial number of books, the core journals
relevant to the field, the cognitive science-related publications
of the Center faculty members, the cognitive science technical report
series of both UB and other institutions, materials on other cognitive
science programs around the country, and the tapes of virtually
all the talks that the Center has sponsored.
newest addition to the library is a Dell laptop computer. You are
welcome to use it. Although there is no printer connected to it
you can save your data onto CDRs or CD-RW. You can purchase the
media for a $1.00 in the CogSci office or bring your own.
specialized and centrally located library serves as a cognitive
science research facility for the campus community.
