We have workshops

The Spring citation management workshops have ended, but recordings of the webinars are now available.

The webinars cover skills in utilizing these tools: Endnote, RefWorks, Zotero, Mendeley. There is also a general Introduction to Citation Management workshop to help you choose the best tool for you. These tools make it easier to create your bibliography and keep track of your references. 

How can citation management software help you? This 60 second video explains.

Citation Management Software

Is there software to help organize my references?

Yes! EndNote, RefWorks, Zotero and Mendeley are available for use by current NU faculty, staff, and students. These programs can help you collect and manage your references, and auto-format citations and bibliographies in your papers.
