PGSA Scholarship Management Workshop

Event Date: 
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 -
4:00pm to 6:00pm
Room Number: 
309

Is formatting a bibliography the bane of your existence? Daunted and overwhelmed at the prospect of conducting a literature review? Join PGSA and Howard Tilton research librarians in an interactive workshop that will introduce Payson students to citation management software in addition to other scholarship management strategies. Topics covered will include:

  • Using Zotero citation management software*
  •  Managing research data
  •  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 Amy Biedermann at abiederm@tulane.edu if you plan to attend.  Seats are first come, first served.  For distance based students, a detailed workshop summary will be distributed via e-mail next week.

* 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.
