Managing Your Scholarship: Mendeley, RefWorks or Zotero?

Name: Managing Your Scholarship: Mendeley, RefWorks or Zotero?

Time & Date: Monday, October 25, 2010 1:00PM – 4:00PM

Location: Woodward Library Teaching Lab, Room B25

Managing references, articles and bibliographies is a critical part of virtually every academic or scholarly research project. However, selecting the best online tool for the job can be a major challenge for grad students and faculty. This hands-on, interactive workshop will provide an overview to three of the more popular reference management tools in academia — Mendeley, RefWorks and Zotero — and will highlight the pros and cons of each. Which tool(s) are used most often in science? In the humanities and social sciences? When full-text downloading with PDFs, which tool performs the best? Finally, which of these tools is open-source and free and which requires affiliation to an academic institution?

The first 2 hours of this session will include a presentation, discussion and demonstration of the products using hands-on examples. The final hour will provide participants with hands-on time to try out all three products with support from the instructors.

This is a FREE event open to UBC Faculty, Staff, and Students.
Space is limited. Please Register online at to attend.
