September 10. 5:30pm - 6:15pm.
Library room 214.

Presenter: Ron Schwertfeger.

Are you tired of copying & pasting your bibliography together from  emails, notes, post-its, etc.?  Do you wish that you could find that article that you read last month, or that book you used for a paper last semester?  You should use a citation management app!  In this session, you will see how a citation manager can assist you with your research, and where & how you can download and install three of the most commonly-used programs:  Endnote, Mendeley, and Zotero.

Research is greatly aided by modern research tools which can help to simplify the crunchy bits. Ron Schwertfeger’s Citation Management will start with the basics of using citation tools and discuss a wide variety of types and features. In his follow-up classes, he will dive into two of the most popular software packages for citation management: Zotero and EndNote. The TARGET AUDIENCE is anyone who wants to take some stress out of research by learning these helpful tools. Bring a laptop or device to the workshop, and you can follow along!*
