WISER coming up: RefWorks and Reference Management

Bodleian Libraries will be running  the following workshops on reference management this term:

RefWorks for Humanities [Friday 3 February 2.00 - 5.00] and RefWorks for Sciences and Social Sciences [Friday 2 March 9.15-12.15]
RefWorks is a powerful online tool which  can help you to manage your references, insert them into your papers, easily switch between citation styles and automatically generate bibliographies.  These workshops will introduce you to the main features of RefWorks. 
Book your place at RefWorks for Humanities | Book your place at RefWorks for Sciences and Social Sciences  
If you can’t come along to the RefWorks session that is most appropriate to your discipline please come along to the other session. The two sessions are similar although they use different examples in the demonstrations.  

WISER: Technology Tools – Reference Management [Wednesday 8 February 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
