EndNote Basics
Monday, September 21
Walter Library 310


This workshop will give you an introduction to EndNote--a desktop-based citation manager. EndNote allows you to store and organize your citations and can format bibliographies and in-text citations from those stored citations. I'll be demonstrating the most recent version of EndNote (X3) but the class should be useful even for those using older versions.

Note: We'll have demonstration copies of EndNote to use in the workshop, but to use in your research you will need to purchase your own individual instance of the software.

Grant Funding for Graduate Students
Tuesday, September 22
Walter Library 310

This workshop is aimed at helping grad students find grant opportunities specific to their research aims. The workshop will cover searching Illinois Research Information Service (IRIS), SPIN, and Community of Science to find grant funding opportunities.

Zotero: Basics
Wednesday, September 23
Walter Library 310


We'll go over the basics of using Zotero--a Firefox plug-in that you can use to store your citations and capture website information for free. Zotero can also format bibliographies and in-text citations and has other unique uses.

You can register for classes on our website. If you have any questions...feel free to send me an email.
