Presentation Title: Citation Software SmackDown (Zotero vs Mendeley)

Description: Do you struggle to create a reference list for your research papers? Does the thought of keeping track of and formatting all your reference sources for your thesis/dissertation keep you up at night? Stop doing it all by yourself. This workshop will introduce you to citation management software, how it works, and will provide a comparison of Zotero and Mendeley, two free software platforms. Learn their advantages and basic tips for using.

Presenter: Edward Eckel, Engineering and Applied Sciences Librarian
