2. Citation Management Workshop
Date & Time: Tuesday, October 30, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Location: Fogler Library Classroom 1

Large research projects, especially theses and dissertations, involve extensive use of a variety of publications. It’s difficult to locate and organize these materials and their citations, and to represent these references in the required format. Citation managers can be a big help on this side of the research process.

This workshop is intended to provide an overview of citation management software. We’ll use examples from multiple managers to demonstrate the capabilities and usefulness of these tools. As well, we will discuss some of the considerations in choosing a citation manager.

If you’re about to embark upon a significant project, or you’ve begun a project and are feeling a bit overwhelmed by its complexity, this workshop may be a big help.

To attend, please RSVP online.
