February 6 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
One event on February 6, 2023 at 4:30 pm
New to citation management, don’t know where to start, or trying to get familiar with the free tools supported at UBC? This workshop compares the two citation-management tools supported at the Research Commons, Zotero and Mendeley, including a discussion of the similarities and unique features of each tool. We will also go over some commonly-encountered challenges and suggestions on how to work around them.
Before the workshop
If you’d like to follow along with the demonstrations, download the citation-management tools Zotero and Mendeley. Downloading and installing will be reviewed in the workshop, and the presenter will attempt to troubleshoot any challenges, within the given time constraints.
- Import metadata and create basic references using both Zotero and Mendeley.
- Understand the features of the citation-management tools Zotero and Mendeley and why one tool might be preferred over another for a particular user or for a specific purpose.
This session will be recorded, and all registered attendees will receive the recording by email.
