Refworks WorkshopHaving trouble organizing your research?  Need to keep track of your citations?  Use RefWorks!

The Thomas G. Carpenter Library will present an introductory RefWorks workshop for all UNF students, faculty and staff. RefWorks is an online research management tool that saves researchers’ time by allowing them to collect, store and generate citations in a variety of formats. Librarians will guide participants through creating a RefWorks account, finding and exporting citations, editing the information, and making a bibliography. There is no need to register ahead of time, so attendees can simply pick the time that works best for them.

Days and times for the workshop are as follows:

  • Monday, March 30 at 6:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, March 31 at 12:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 1 at 2:00 p.m. ONLINE
  • Thursday, April 2 at 10:00 a.m.

In person workshops will take place in Classroom 2102A on the Library’s second floor. Light refreshments will be served.

ClubhouseResearch_flierBeginning Monday, March 9, First Year Outreach Librarian Cat Silvers will be available in the Osprey Clubhouse every Monday for Fall & Spring from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for student research. This is an exciting new partnership between the library and Housing and Residence Life to bring academics into student common areas. Students will have the opportunity to bring their research questions to Cat while studying in the common room, doing their laundry, or grabbing a snack at the Pita Pit. This new service demonstrates the library’s ongoing engagement in student success and retention.
