Choosing a Citation Management Tool

New to citation management, don't know where to start, or trying to get familiar with the free tools supported at UBC? This workshop compares the two citation management tools supported at the Research Commons, Zotero and Mendeley, including a discussion of the similarities and unique features of each tool. We will also go over some commonly encountered challenges, and suggestions on how to work around them.  
By the end of this session, attendees will:
  • Import metadata and create basic references using both Zotero and Mendeley.
  • Understand the features of citation management tools Zotero and Mendeley, and why one tool might be preferred over another for a particular user or for a specific purpose.

Things to do before arriving.

If you'd like to follow along with the demonstrations, download the citation management tools Zotero and Mendeley.
