Library Workshop: Citation Management for the Savvy Academic

October 17, 12:45pm-1:30pm 

Perkins Library, room 217

Today’s citation management software programs are not merely the latest tools available to help academics organize information. As open source, cloud-based, and supportive of cross-disiplinary and cross-institutional collaboration, citation management tools represent new ways and philosophies of conducting academic research. Duke University Librarian Ciara Healy presents an overview of the reasons behind choosing different citation management tools and their affordances for more expansive research. This workshop will include a demonstration and discussion of the affordances of Zotero in particular for cross-disciplinary work, as well as the use of Mendeley and Endnote.

Participants are encouraged to bring laptops to support hands-on use of these tools. Library laptops can also be checked out for use with the workshop.

Event is free and open to the public.
