Summer 2018 Webinars: Citation Management Tools

RefWorks and Zotero. Two powerful citation management tools that make it a breeze to gather resources, save citations, and quickly generate bibliographies. Now, the Global NYU Library makes it easy for you to learn how to use these tools from the comfort of your own home! This summer, you are invited to sign up for the following webinars:

Wednesday, June 6th at 10 PM Shanghai Local Time (June 6th, 10 AM EDT)

Need help keeping track of the articles, books, etc. you find on your topic?  RefWorks is a citation management tool that lets you import and organize the references you find as you search catalogs/databases, and automatically format bibliographies according to your selected style (MLA, APA, etc.).

We welcomed the term with our new instruction space, the bright and sunny Curiosity Lab. Library staff developed 29 pre-scheduled workshops for you on topics including:

In addition, we taught 39 in-class workshops by faculty request. Librarians and technologists work with courses to introduce resources, tools, and targeted strategies for course research.

The Library looks forward to Spring 2018, with more workshops. If you’d like to recommend a research topic, or if you are an instructor and would like to know more about having a research or technology workshop for your class, please email us!
