Graduate Student Workshop Series – December (All Students)

Tips and Tricks for Formatting Your Thesis: Little Things Mean A Lot!

Are you worried about getting your thesis/dissertation into the format required by the Faculty of Graduate Studies? Would you like to know more about how to use the formatting features in Microsoft Word? Research Commons staff will help you with your questions about the nuts and bolts of formatting: page layout, numbering, headings, front matter, and more! As well, find out more about the resources that are available to help you in writing your thesis/dissertation. Graduate students at any stage of the writing process are welcome; some prior knowledge of Microsoft Word will be helpful.

Citation Management Using RefWorks, Zotero or Mendeley

Need to manage large numbers of references and citations as part of your research, teaching or administrative work? Citation management tools are for you. These tools provide a simple way to store, organize and retrieve your citations in an effective manner, and can also help you in formatting in-text citations and bibliographies in your work.

Sign up for an introductory workshop for an overview of citation management tools, or for a tool specific hands-on workshop to a brief introduction to the main concepts of citation management and detailed instruction for use of either RefWorks, Zotero, or Mendely.
