Citation Management Workshop: Zotero and Mendeley

CAPAL Citation Poster

What: This workshop will cover two free citation management tools, Zotero and Mendeley. As future academic librarians we may encounter patrons who would like to use software other than Refworks, or work in an institution that promotes Zotero or Mendeley. The workshop will be conducted by Dal CAPAL members, Tess Grynoch and Chantel Ridsdale.

If participants would like to follow along during the workshop, we encourage them to download both citation management tools onto their personal computer beforehand. 

When: October 9th, 12pm-1pm

Where: Rowe Building, Room 4001
