Upcoming Workshops


Are you looking for an effective way to organize your research? Are you tired of typing out your bibliographies and citations by hand? Try learning Zotero! Zotero is a free, open-source citation manager. This workshop will cover how to build and organize your personal library, import citations from library databases, and create shared libraries for collaborative projects. Light snacks will be provided.

This workshop is the first workshop in our Zotero for the Humanities: Research Essentials Workshop Series.

If you’d like to follow along with the demonstration on your own device, plan to have Zotero and Zotero Connector (the browser plug-in) or Zotero iOS installed on your device before the session. This workshop will be taught in macOS and iOS.

Location: PCL Learning Lab 3 (PCL 2.350)


Whether you are a new user of EndNote or need to brush up on your skills, this is the workshop for you!  EndNote is a sophisticated reference management tool that allows you to:

  • import references from multiple sources
  • organize the references in a logical and efficient manner
  • find & attach full text articles, and create notes in those articles
  • easily facilitate citation tasks within your manuscript in thousands of reference/journal styles at the click of a button

If you want to have an interactive experience, you should download and install EndNote before attending the workshop. You can purchase EndNote for a discount through the Campus Computer Store or get a 30-day free trial to EndNote.  If interested in getting a head start before the workshop, take a look at the UT Libraries’ EndNote guide.
