Citation Management Using RefWorks, Zotero, or Mendeley
Need to manage large numbers of references and citations as part of your research, teaching or administrative work? Citation management tools are for you. These tools provide a simple way to store, organize and retrieve your citations in an effective manner, and can also help you in formatting in-text citations and bibliographies in your work.
Sign up for a tool specific hands-on workshop about the core concepts of citation management and detailed instruction for use of either RefWorks, Zotero, or Mendeley.
Are you new to citation management tools entirely, or do you have advanced-user questions? See our Consultations page to book a one-on-one session: http://koerner.library.ubc.ca/services/research-commons/.

FIREtalk: Indigenizing the Academy
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission events in Vancouver support reconciliation between Aboriginal people and wider Canadian society. To continue the conversation, Xwi7xwa Library and the Research Commons at Koerner Library invite you to participate in a FIREtalk at the First Nations House of Learning Hall on Oct 23, 4-6 pm.
How can the academy engage Aboriginal and Indigenous knowledge? What are some ways researchers at UBC – Indigenous and non-Indigenous – are using Indigenous methodologies and incorporating Indigenous knowledge? What challenges arise and how can we address them?
Be part of the discussion: submit your proposals for a 5-minute presentation by the 7th of October, 2013. Find more information at: http://bit.ly/FTpresent
FIREtalks: An interdisciplinary forum for graduate students, by graduate students. Find out more at: http://bit.ly/firetalk
