Register for this virtual workshop*

Anyone familiar with academic writing can attest to how time-consuming it can be to manually manage and format citations. Citation managers are tools that help you to collect and organize references. These tools also help format citations and create bibliographies for dissertations, theses, and other writing projects.

With so many citation management options available, it can be overwhelming to decide which program to choose. This 30-minute class will briefly introduce participants to three frequently utilized citation managers: EndNote, Sciwheel, and Zotero. Our instructors will help participants determine which citation manager best suits their needs and answer any questions that you may have about citation tools. This class is perfect for those who are inexperienced with citation managers or for those who are looking to switch to a new one.

Upon completion of this class and after selecting the citation manager that works best for you, register for one of our in-depth introduction sessions. In-depth sessions are available for Basic EndNote, Introduction to Sciwheel, and Introduction to Zotero—these will help you get started importing, annotating, and organizing all your references.

If you are unable to attend, this scheduled session can also be repeated on request. Request a customized session of Choosing a Citation Manager and other HSLS workshops for your course, group, or department.
