List of Upcoming Workshops for 2017-2018 Academic Year

Reference Resource Management: Mendeley

Description: How do you keep track of references and citations? Are you still typing citations and references manually? In this workshop you will learn the key functions of Mendeley reference management. Mendeley is a combination of a desktop application and a website which helps you manage, share and discover both the content and contacts in your research. We will cover adding citations to your reference library, organizing and managing those citations, creating a bibliography, and using the Microsoft Word plug-in to easily insert citations from Mendeley into your documents.
