The Productive Scholar: Audrey Welber and Willow Dressel on bibliographic tools
Thursday, March 1, 12:00 noon
Frist Multipurpose Room A
Bibliographies and Footnotes, No Longer a Chore!
Audrey Welber, Willow Dressel
Does assembling and managing your bibliographies take hours that you could better spend improving your papers (or with family and friends)? The session will focus on how bibliographic management software can streamline the research and writing process–whether you’re a physicist or a philologist!
Audrey Betsy Welber and Willow Dressel will give an overview of bibliographic management software, focusing on Zotero and Refworks. They will also demonstrate how to use these tools with the Library’s new “Searchit@PUL” interface.
