Citation Managers

Mendeley is a citation manager that can save you time and ease your workload. In this workshop you will learn how to organize and share references, build bibliographies, annotate PDFs within the tool, and insert citations in your papers as you write. Mendeley is freely available in both web and desktop versions.
