Overview of reference management tools (Online)

Tue 8 Mar 2022, 11:00 - 12:30 GMT


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.
