Reference management classes for Trinity Term – RefWorks, Endnote, Zotero and Mendeley

Bodleian Libraries will be re-running its three popular workshops on Reference Management this term, so if you need to manage references for insertion into your research papers, dissertations or essays, get on and book your places! 

WISER: Technology Tools – Reference  Management (Friday 8 June June 2.00-5.00) introduces four software options for managing references and inserting them into your papers including  the two market leaders, RefWorks and Endnote and two popular free packages, Zotero and Mendeley.  We will discuss some of the pros and cons of each package and factors to consider when making a choice. Participants will also have opportunities to try out the different packages.   >Book your place online

RefWorks for Humanities (Wednesday 11 May 2.00-5.0o)  and RefWorks for Sciences and Social Sciences (Wednesday 18 May 2.00-5.00) both focus on RefWorks and will cover:

  • signing up for RefWorks
  • adding references to RefWorks from a range of databases and online resources
  • inserting references into your word processed documents
  • formatting (and reformatting) references using citation styles
  • creating bibliographies.

Both sessions will include plenty of opportunities for participants to use RefWorks.

If you can’t come along to the RefWorks session that is most appropriate to your discipline please do come along to the other session.   The two sessions are similar although they use different examples in the demonstrations.  Book your place on RefWorks for Humanities or book your place on RefWorks for Sciences and Social Sciences.

What about Endnote?  – If you are interested in using Endnote then it is well worth attending the excellent series of Endnote classes run by Computing Service > Find out more.
