Introduction to Citation Managers: Beyond RefWorks (Scholarship@Dal Libraries Webinar Series)

As Dalhousie’s subscription to RefWorks comes to an end, users may have questions about alternatives, and about how to move their references from RefWorks to another manager. This session will offer a brief overview of two major free products, Mendeley and Zotero, as well as Endnote (which must be purchased by the user.) Attendees will learn the basics of installing the product, adding citations (whether from databases for from a RefWorks account), and using them to insert citations and create bibliographies in your papers.

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • Have a basic familiarity with Zotero, Mendeley, and EndNote
  • Be introduced to migrating references from RefWorks into another citation manager
  • Learn the basics of inserting formatted citations and bibliographies into their papers using a citation manager

​Presented by Shelley McKibbon, an information services librarian at the WK Kellogg Health Sciences Library who has been assisting users with citation managers since 2003.
