Do you find yourself spending hours, usually in the dead of night, inserting in-line citations and producing bibliographies manually? If the answer’s yes and you’re thinking, “There’s got to be a better way,” then come to one of our Zotero or Refworks workshops.
Refworks and Zotero are both citation management tools that allow you to create and organize a personal library of citations, insert in-line citations into your term papers or theses, and then produce bibliographies automatically in the citation style of choice (Vancouver, APA, etc.). The two tools are very similar in functionality. The main difference is that Refworks is provided through a library subscription to UBC faculty, staff, students and alumni, while Zotero is free, open-source software.
At Woodward Library we’re hosting a number of noon-hour sessions to help make this part of your academic work easier and faster. You can register for (a) session(s) using the registration links below:
