11/15 RefWorks & Endnote Workshop
Wednesday, November 15, 2006 - 12:00pm to Wednesday, November 15, 2006 - 2:30pm

The University has recently acquired limited site licenses to two major bibliography management software packages - EndNote and RefWorks. These are available to students, staff, and faculty.

Workshop presented by Michael Bowman, Library andTim Anderson, Engineering and Technology Management Dept.

This workshop is divided into three parts.

The first hour will introduce EndNote - a popular desktop application that integrates smoothly with Word. It has been used and partially supported on campus for over a decade.

The second hour will introduce RefWorks - a new, Web-based application that also integrates with Word. Unlike a desktop application, it can be accessed easily from off-campus and doesn't require installation of new software. RefWorks strength is in its ability to allow you to share your databases with colleagues on- and off-campus.

The third part of the workshop discusses the relative tradeoffs between the two packages. Get advice on which software package best meets your needs.

Space is limited. This workshop was held in September and a dozen people were turned away due to room limitations. You can sign up for any, all, or a combination of the three parts of the workshop by emailing Michael Bowman (bowman@pdx.edu). Please indicate which part(s) of the workshop you wish to attend.
