Managing Your Research

As you gather articles and book chapters for your writing projects, it is important to keep them in an orderly fashion so they can be easily inserted into papers as you write.  I recommend using a bibliographic citation manager such as EndNote, EndNoteWeb, Mendeley or Zotero.  

If interested in learning about any of these software packages, feel free to contact me directly and I can help get you started.  

We also have drop-in classes and online tutorials available.
