Event Date:

1:30pm to 2:30pm
Room Number: 
309

Never used the vast resources at Howard Tilton – or have but feel your skills are a bit rusty? Daunted and overwhelmed at the prospect of conducting a literature review? Is formatting a bibliography the bane of your existence?  Join PGSA and Howard Tilton research librarians in an interactive workshop that will introduce Payson students to citation management software in addition to other research tools and strategies. Topics covered will include:

  • Using Zotero citation management software*
  • Finding and using appropriate databases and datasets
  • Managing your research resources
  • Staying abreast of the journal literature
  • Additional ways to keep up with the scholarly community

We will be using a computer lab so seating is limited!  Please RSVP to Kami Bruner at kbruner1@tulane.edu if you plan to attend.  Seats are first come, first served. For distance-based students, please let us know if you would like more information on these subjects and we will do our best to connect you with a library instructor to work with you.

 

* Zotero is a free application that can be downloaded from www.zotero.org.  It functions either as a plug-in to the Firefox browser, or as a stand-alone application that works with Safari or Chrome browsers.  (Internet Explorer is not supported.)  Since Zotero cannot currently be downloaded to the networked computers in room 309, feel free to bring your own laptops to the session if you want to use it while we search.  If not, you can always download it to your preferred computer afterwards and practice later.
