Formatting your in text citations/footnotes and bibliography correctly for your thesis or publication is a chore. Reference management software makes it easier and saves you time. This introductory session gives an overview of how reference management works, explores the pros and cons of a wide range of reference management packages and gives you the opportunity to try out five different packages so that you can work out which one is best for you. The packages included are RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero, Mendeley and ColWiz.
Presenters: Oliver Bridle, Erika Delbeque, Sophie Staves, Pamela Stanworth, Angela Carritt
Venue: IT Services, 13 Banbury Road. >Book online
RefWorks for your Laptop

At this introductory workshop you will set up and learn to use RefWorks on your own laptop. The session is open to all, but the section on importing references will focus on Science/Social Science examples.
Who is this session for? Postgraduates, researchers, academics and undergraduates wishing to use reference management software.
Presenters: Nia Roberts, Gigi Horsfield and Angela Carritt
Venue: Jesus College Ship Street Centre (next to the News Cafe) > Book online
