Workshop

DescriptionFall '15 Dates
Citation Management ToolsYour bibliography begins as soon as you've cited an article, and assembling it is an ongoing part of your writing process. This session will cover the citation tools available to you, and how to make sure that your bibliography accurately reflects the work that went into it.

TBD

Image Searching and CitationA research paper, presentation or poster looks extra special with nice graphics and photos. Luckily, the Internet has a plethora of images to save and use. But beware, visual media like words, carry copyright protections, sometimes specific instructions on use, and need to be cited. This workshop will introduce you to tools to find images on the Internet that are safe to use and how to cite them in your research.

TBD

Literature Reviews and Annotated BibliographiesThis session will discuss how to assemble a comprehensive collection of pertinent references and how to turn those references into a clear narrative showing why your work is unique and important.

TBD

What's Your Impact: Citation TrackingYour impact as a scholar is partly reflected in the effect your work has on others, as observed through citations. This session will discuss the traditional methods to track how others are citing you through databases as well as "altmetrics," which measure impact in social media.
