To support culminating project/thesis

Bibliographic Management Software

There are several options for managing bibliographic references and more information about Bibliographic Management Software (BMS): 

1. EndNote and EndNote Basic- a more sophisticated tool but with a steeper learning curve and also requires installing on a personal computer after buying the software - take the trial before you invest and make sure it is something that you feel comfortable using - there is a free limited web-based product available via the Web of Science or Web of Knowledge platform that will not be compatible with the full system unless content is uploaded.

2. Zotero - a free open access web-based product developed as an extension of the Firefox browser often preferred by people in the Sci/Tech subject discplines and which must be downloaded to a specific computer 

3. Mendeley- a free, open source product that is increasingly popular for managing information, especially PDFs. Promotes sharing via different social networking options. Training sessions will be held on Mon., Oct 17 at 10-11:30 am and again on Friday, Oct 28 at 12-1:30 pm in MRC 164

Tools to consult include YouTube videos & tutorials and the following books:
