“Dear Respected Dean
of Nursing, Dear Respected Vice Dean,
I am sending this
e-mail to express my sincerest gratitude to an outstanding member at the
faculty of nursing Ms. Duaa Maharmeh in her outstanding efforts in the lecture
about Endnote software.
And special thanks
for Dr. Reema to arrange for this lecture.
Myself, as a PhD
student, I used to utilize MS Word reference manager and the primitive way of
citation using google scholar. I heard about EndNote five years ago, day
one of my Masters degree, but unfortunately, two trials of workshops which
were provided by doctors from the faculty of nursing failed to put me on the
list of EndNote adopters.
workshops, technical difficulties, poor display of product features, and
solving the citation pains lead to failure of presenting the product.
2018, Duaa Maharmeh came in based on an invitation form Dr. Reema Safadi to
give us a lecture about EndNote reference manager as a part of the special
topics in nursing course (professional writing) for the PhD students.
I was not interested and against the usage of the software due to the bad
experience I got in previous lectures about it.
introduced the topic, and started by presenting a simple framework. The
framework guides any user to the capabilities and main features of the
software, provides an outline of the lecture and the expected outcomes of the
lecture...... all in one-page simple framework that contain less than 20 words.
Then, she starts to
tackle the pains of students in managing citations and references...solving all
trouble in a click of a button. She showed all the simple tips and tricks that
you will not find at any tutorial video or manual. She demonstrated the true
spirit of a teacher who likes to "give". She is actually the
true definition of "giving" in terms of education and knowledge
I would like to
stress here the "passion" she expressed in teaching us the usage of
the software, answering all of our questions, helping all of us one-by-one moving
among the desks and PCs without showing any sign of stress or nervousness. She
only showed "passion".
I apologize for the
long e-mail, but I found it as the only way to thank the lady who, with a short
encounter, put her prints in the development of my skills and knowledge as a
As an outcome of the
lecture today, me and my colleagues decided to buy an original copy of the
Software to start using it immediately.
Please advise me if
there is any other way to recognize Duaa,
