Keeping Up and Managing Information
Carrying out research can be a daunting task. Managing all of the information you find and keeping up with new research as it comes out can sometimes take more time than doing the research itself.
The modules in this page will help you to manage your information better by:
- showing you how to use citation management software such as EndNote or Zotero.
- demonstrating the use of social bookmarking and wikis as another way to manage your information individually or with a group.
You can also learn how to keep up with information by:
- using research alerts (journal table of contents and/or database search alerts)
- organizing with RSS readers
- reading or writing blogs
Librarians regularly offer workshops on these topics as well. Check here to see when these workshops are being offered.
