All sessions held in Ellis Library 213.

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.

Tuesday, January 28               1 to 2 p.m.
Wednesday, February 5          3 to 4 p.m.
Thursday, February 13            11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Getting Started with Mendeley
Mendeley is a citation manager that began as freeware. The basic program is still free, but paid subscriptions which provide more cloud storage are available. The hands-on class covers the basics of adding citations and PDFs to Mendeley as well as getting citations from Mendeley into Word documents.

Monday, February 17              12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Wednesday, February 26        2 to 3 p.m.
Thursday, March 5                  3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Getting Started with Zotero
Bibliographies no longer have to be a frustrating component of your research paper. Zotero is a free and simple open-source research tool that can organize, manage and format your bibliography content. In our workshop, learn how to use Zotero to help create your bibliographies and in-text citations by extracting citations from PDFs and web pages.

Thursday, February 27              3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Friday, March 6                         3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Getting Started with EndNote
EndNote is a commercial citation manager which is available at no cost to MU students. The class provides hands-on practice configuring EndNote to download PDFs, ways to get citations and PDFs into EndNote as well as how to get citations from EndNote into Word documents.
