The first week of November is Citation Week at the library, featuring three virtual workshops on managing and citing sources. Everyone is welcome to attend!

  • Tuesday, November 2, 7-8 p.m. via TeamsDon't Reinvent the (Citation) Wheel, with Pamela Contakos - You don't have to start from scratch when creating citations. In this workshop you'll learn where to find citation information in the library databases to streamline the citation process and we'll take a look at some good resources with examples of citations that cover all kinds of resources.
  • Wednesday, November 3, 7-8 p.m. via TeamsBetter Living through Citation Management, with Emily Alling. Learn about options for keeping track of your sources and formatting and generating notes and bibliographies. We'll look at Zotero, a free, open-source citation manager, as well as built-in features in Word and Google Docs, depending on interest.
  • Thursday, 11/4, 7-8 p.m, via Teams.: The Idiosyncrasies and Peculiarities of Chicago Style, with Kate Flower: Chicago Style can feel very intimidating, and you may not be sure where to start if you're required to use it. In this workshop we'll cover Author-Date vs. Notes-Bibliography, as well as how to cite unusual primary sources, and sources found within a source.

In addition to these workshops and our online guides, librarians are always happy to work with you one-on-one or or in a group setting to go over citation information (or any other research or information need!). Get in touch using our Ask Us tools, or, to request a workshop, use the Classroom Instruction Request Form.
