Frist Multipurpose Room A
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 and demonstrate how RefWorks, Endnote, and Zotero work with Library’s databases, including the brand new “Searchit@PUL” interface.
Audrey Betsy Welber serves Princeton primarily as a humanities reference librarian in Firestone Library. She runs the Library’s “Chat Reference” service, which allows students and faculty to get reference help from librarians in real time via Instant Messaging. Audrey also occasionally teaches a freshman writing seminar with the Princeton Writing Program.
Willow Dressel is the assistant engineering and plasma physics librarian. Her work interests include instruction, search interfaces, and bibliographic citation managers. She teaches workshops on Zotero in Firestone Library.
Zotero announced today that they will be releasing Multilingual Zotero. This software will allow scholars that working in multiple languages to correctly format multilingual data. It also deletes duplicates.
