February Workshops Cover Zotero and Mendeley, Research Data, and Information Organization

Librarian Michael Bowman is offering his popular workshops again this winter term. Here’s what’s coming up:

workshop infoManaging Resources with Zotero and Mendeley

Zotero and Mendeley are web-based and desktop citation and PDF management tools that make it easy to collect, organize and cite research materials. Both are terrific tools for anyone working on a research project, as they can help you manage your research materials from multiple sources and insert them into your publications with ease.

Wednesday, Feb. 3, 4–5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Feb. 16, 4–5:30 p.m.
Library Room 160


workshop infoOrganizing Your Information

Learn how to efficiently review and manage information of all types. This covers software such as Twitter, RSS readers, read later programs, note taking and storing applications and citation management software.

Tuesday, Feb. 9, 4–5:30 p.m.
Library Room 284


workshop infoHow to Make Your Research Data Sing

Want to learn skills that will boost your research and your career? What do you need to consider when you’re working with research data? What file formats and organization should you use? What documentation should accompany your data so that you (and others) can re-use it at a later date (or incorporate it with data collected by others) — possibly years from now? What are the current standards in your field for adding metadata to describe your data and prepare it for deposit in a disciplinary repository or in PDXScholar?

Wednesday, Feb. 24, 4–5:30 p.m.
Library Room 160
