Events
Thursday, February 21, 2019 | 11am – 1pmPeter J. Shields Library

This workshop will introduce users to the basics of Mendeley, an open-source citation manager, similar to EndNote. In the course of an hour, users will learn all the necessary skills to use Mendeley for their research including how to import source meta-data and full-text, organize their sources, export sources into papers, choose citation styles, connect the web and desktop versions of Mendeley and cooperate with other Mendeley users in groups. Since this software is not loaded in the library lab, these sessions will be for demonstration UNLESS users bring their own laptops with Mendeley already loaded which can be done here https://www.mendeley.com/?interaction_required=true
Please register for a seat.

PLEASE NOTE: EndNote is no longer licensed campus-wide. Many campus departments have decided to continue with EndNote so you should check with your departmental IT contact before signing up for this class.

EndNote is a bibliographic management program which simplifies the process of generating bibliographies and reference lists. EndNote allows one to easily store, manage, and format references to any core science style guide such as ACS, APA, CSE, IEEE, NLM or to any specific journal style such as FASEB J, Front Ecol Environ, IEEE Access, J Agr Food Chem, J Exp Biol, Plant Cell, PLoS One, Science. EndNote also helps you store, organize, and easily retrieve publication PDFs.

This introductory class will cover: creating EndNote libraries; direct export of citations from science databases; adding PDFs to your EndNote Library; output styles; and Cite While You Write (using EndNote with Microsoft Word).
