The Citation Management Cure

Do you suffer from Lost Citation Syndrome? Consider the following scenario:

It’s the day before a paper is due, and you have the perfect quote you want to use but can’t remember which article you found it in. You can either lose precious time redoing your database searches or lose the quote. By the time you find the article, you have one hour and 15 citations to input into your bibliography before the paper is due. If only you had known about citation organizers before you got in this mess!

Now there’s hope for Lost Citation Syndrome sufferers. Let the library help you by attending a workshop Friday, January 14th. Our Digital Services Librarian, Christine McClure, will show you a variety of citation management tools that allow you to save, organize, annotate and export your citations as you work. She’ll talk about databases such as Ebsco that have their own organizers to larger multi-platform organizers like EndNote and Zotero. It doesn’t matter if your paper is 3 pages or 300 – this class will save you time and reduce panic and frustration.
