The audience (53) -mainly researchers and a few clinicians, but also a couple of librarians of the Library of the University of Groningen. (we simply couldn't keep them out of the room :-)- were gathered in the so-called "Rode Zaal".
Presenter was Chris James, Account Development Manager at Elsevier.
In his first session he covered the basics of Scopus and tried to get some response from the audience. Some remarkable responses:
- "who is using Scopus?" : no hands. (Scopus became available at the University in the second part of 2008)
- "Web of Science" : no hands
The Scopus presentation is available below.

Before the break I then did a 30 minute demo of library services, resources and new tools.
