University Libraries Introduces Easy-to-use Reference Tool Options

Content Stored in RefWorks Must Be Migrated Soon

Kent State University Libraries is introducing three widely used software tools that are used for the collection, organization, citing, use and sharing of information resources that support research. A partnership with Information Services is offering workshops to introduce the three major programs: Zotero, Mendeley and Endnote programs.

The research software RefWorks no longer will be offered by University Libraries after the 2016-17 academic year. Content now stored in RefWorks must be migrated soon in order to be retained. RefWorks users are encouraged to register for a free workshop to learn about simple-to-use options.

In the workshops, attendees will learn how to create a database of articles/references, cite resources while writing, work with/annotate PDFs, collaborate with others and more.

Visit https://training.kent.edu to choose from the following sessions:

  • Tuesday, April 4, from 10:50 a.m.-12:05 p.m. 
  • Tuesday, April 18, from 5:15-6:30 p.m.

Workshops will be held in the Technology Workshop Training Center located in University Library, Room 152. Additional workshops may be added if sessions are filled. Walk-in clinics also may be scheduled.
