Choosing a Citation Manager
A citation manager helps organize PDFs and notes as well as format citations in thousands of styles. Unfortunately, there is no best
citation manager. The three citation managers the library teaches—Zotero, EndNote and Mendeley—all have different strengths and
weaknesses. This class previews each citation manager and explains the differences between them.

Workshops @ Your Library, Nov. 9

Altmetrics: Article Level Metrics for Measuring the Impact of Research

It takes time for your work to be formally cited by other researchers and common citation indexes do not work equally well for all disciplines and research methods. Altmetrics (article level metrics) are faster and wider-ranging measures of the impact your work is having on other researchers and the general public. This workshop will introduce you to current altmetrics tools and how they’re being used to demonstrate the value of research.

Date: Friday, November 9, 2018
Time: 1 to 2 p.m.
Location: 213 Ellis Library
