Faculty Workshop: Introduction to Citation Managers

The City Tech Library, in partnership with the Faculty Commons, is pleased to invite all faculty to a library workshop. Looking for a way to streamline and manage the research you do using internet or library sources? Looking for a tool that your students can use to keep track of their research? Learn about how citation managers can help you organize and cite references as well as share and discuss scholarship with colleagues at City Tech or beyond. In this workshop we’ll introduce you to 4 solutions for citation management: RefWorks, EasyBib, Zotero, and Mendeley.
This workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 6, 1-2pm in Rm. A441 (small library classroom). RSVP to Prof. Maura Smale at msmale@citytech.cuny.edu or 260-5748.
