Overview of Reference Management Tools
Getting organised: guidance for using reference management tools
Keeping track of published research, referencing other research outputs in your own writing and identifying new opportunities for collaboration can be time-consuming processes.
In this session we will help you to be well-organised and efficient, showing you how reference management software can help store, organise and annotate references and create accurate citations and bibliographies in thousands of different referencing styles.
Web-based packages also enable you to build academic social networks to share and discuss research publications, identify researchers working in your field and crowd-source the latest publications in your research area.
This workshop will introduce you to using reference management tools and the support provided by The University of Manchester Library.
Postgraduate Research: Understanding What to Expect
This workshop will introduce you to the key stages postgraduate researchers undergo in respect to a large research project. The objective is to illustrate the common challenges faced at the start of the project, as you progress with your writing, and once you reach the final stages of your work. The workshop will present postgraduate study as a process that can be universalized but has personal impact and you will work with others (who are interested in or currently engaged in postgraduate study) to map the relevant support available to you. The workshop presents an opportunity for you to connect with others in the postgraduate community, it will showcase the wealth of support and resources you might access and it presents an opportunity to express any concerns you may have about making and managing this transition.
