Managing Your References: Overview of EndNote, RefWorks and Zotero

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 12-1:15pm
Room 14N-132 (DIRC)

Find out about software to create, organize, and maintain your collection of references. These citation management products allow users to search databases, retrieve relevant citations, and build a bibliography to be added to a paper or thesis or stored for future reference. Which one should you use, and how do you get started? This session will focus on EndNote, RefWorks, and Zotero, the three major options for bibliographic software at MIT. We will compare these three products and introduce the basic functionality of each program.  Contact Anita Perkins with any questions.

EndNote Basics

Room 14N-132 (DIRC)

EndNote is a “personal bibliographic software” package which allows you to create and manage a database of bibliographic references. Attendees will create a personal database of cited literature by importing references from resources such as Barton, Web of Science, & other sources of published literature. Your database can be used to automatically generate in-text citations and bibliographies in your manuscripts. It can also help you organize and manage your PDF files.  Contact Peter Cohn with any questions.
