How do I attend?

Go to Reference management tools - an introduction and select 'Join Room'. The room remains closed until the trainer has entered - this will usually be 15 minutes before the start time.

Benefits

This 45 minute session will introduce you to reference management tools and why you would use them. We will explain the basic functions of the tools and how they work with library databases, and with word processors. Please note that this session is not designed to train attendees on how to use a specific tool – but rather to make you aware of when and why you would use a tool, what tools are out there, and some generic functions shared by tools which you can use.

Who's it for?

Particularly suitable for level 3 and postgraduate students who want to use reference management tools to manage their references for assignments and projects.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this session you should have an overview of:

  • How reference management tools work
  • The benefits and risks of using these tools
  • How the tools work with Library resources

Downloads and further help

The slides for this session are available to download. The Library helpdesk does not provide ongoing support for these tools. You can find links to further support and advice from the tool suppliers on the Bibliographic Management page.
