Citation Management Using Mendeley - 10:00am

If you need to manage large numbers of references and citations as part of your research, teaching or administrative work, citation management tools are for you. These tools provide a simple way to store, organize and retrieve your citations in an effective manner, and can also help you in formatting in-text citations and bibliographies in your work.

This hands-on workshop introduces briefly the main concepts of citation management and gives detailed instruction for installing and using Mendeley, one of the most popular citation management tools.


Are you new to Mendeley entirely, or do you have advanced-user questions? Email to set up a one-on-one appointment with one of our citation management experts.
