The main difference between searching on the Open Web and using Library resources is the quality and organization of the information you find. Library databases contain the scholarly articles that professors demand in research papers.
The University Library subscribes to over 250 databases containing over 40,000 journals, many of them in full-text. Attend this workshop and learn the search techniques to make the databases work for you. This session is guaranteed to save you time and to improve your search results!

Citing Your Sources
(covers APA and MLA Style Manuals)

Every professor expects every student to be well versed in the particular style manual used in each discipline, but it's not always easy to figure out what and when to cite. Librarians leading this workshop are experts and will help simplify the process of creating bibliographies for your papers. They will also stress how to avoid plagiarism. Both APA and MLA have released new editions so you need to come learn how to deal with all the new rules. Session limited to 15.

Below are the 8 workshop dates that cover APA and MLA. There are two additional dates for a new citation workshop covering the Chicago Style Manual, used for History and other Humanities classes.

EndNote

EndNote...Bibliographies Made Easy

Recommended for Master’s and Doctoral Students and Faculty Members . (Lower division students are better served by the citation workshops.)

EndNote is a powerful software program designed to organize citations and references and also to create bibliographies. With EndNote you will be able to export your references directly from databases, to store your references in Groups, to search them at will, to attach full-text files and much more. Using MS Word and EndNote together, you can automatically insert citations and references into your document with just a few clicks! EndNote can format your citations according to almost any style manual, not just APA, MLA or Turabian.The campus site license allows students, faculty and staff to install EndNote X4 on personal PC or Macintosh stations.

This workshop assumes that you have already installed EndfNote X4 on to your computer or laptop: You are welcome to bring your laptop to the session so you can work within your own account. EndNote Research Guide will help you download and set up your personal computer: http://csus.libguides.com/EndNote/

Session is limited to 15 attendees.
