Come learn about the citation management tool, Mendeley and how it will make writing orders of magnitude easier. I'll introduce Mendeley, a tool that allows you to easily organize your PDFs, cite your sources, collaborate on research, create bibliographies, and never ever type out a reference again!
This workshop is geared towards anyone who is new to Mendeley or citation management tools in general.
Upon finishing this workshop, attendees will be able to:
- Add a PDF to your Mendeley library
- Create an in-text citation in MS Word
- Create a bibliography
- Create a file naming scheme for your full-text references
- and create a folder organization structure for your full-text references
