Time: 5:30 pm-6:30 PM
Date: November 15th
Ever feel like you are drowning in your resources? Have fantastic research but unsure of how to properly cite your sources? Want to learn how to manage the huge citation list for your research?
Come to our talk about REFWORKS on Tuesday, November 15 and Jay Bhatt (Engineering Information Services Librarian and DSH Product Development Advisor) will show you how.
This workshop will highlight importance of why citing your sources of information is crucial in academic success. Whether you are writing a research paper or completing an assignment for your class, it is extremely important that you provide credit to various sources of information (journal article, book chapter, a web site, images or any other types of resources) that you have used for your project. REFWORKS, a citation management tool, will be used to show how you can build effective bibliography of citations. It will help you manage citations and keep track of the sources you are using for your research and your own notes about the sources. Participants will learn how to build REFWORKS folder (by downloading references from online sources and manually entering references), cite references in Word documents, and finally compose your paper with citations using Write-N-Cite Plug-in. Using this plug-in, you can insert references, and format citations and bibliographies automatically while you write your papers in Word.
