Once you've done all that research how do you keep track of it? Step away from the notecards and learn about online citation tools like Refworks, Zotero and Mendeley. In this short overview, librarian Peter Cohn will show you how to use these three tools to save citations from your favorite databases and websites, store related PDFs or attachments, and quickly build a bibliography for your papers and publications. Learn how to get started with each of these tools, their strengths and weaknesses, and how they can save you time and sanity.
This workshop is also offered on Monday, October 10, 5-6 p.m.
