The abundance of information--some useful, some not--has turned us all into curators of our personal collections. As librarians we have some experience in organizing and keeping track of things; in fact, that's our passion. If you're feeling overwhelmed by all the information in your life, or just want to find a way to format a few citations, take a look at our links below or contact your subject librarian.
Never forget an article or book title again! Citation managers like RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero or Mendeley allow you to easily keep track of things you read and produce in-text citations and bibliographies with just a few clicks of your mouse.
You’ll find online tools for collaborative writing, electronic note-taking, syncing devices, sharing citations, and more. We include tips to help you use these tools effectively.
Simplify your information gathering process with RSS feeds, journal alerts and more. We can help you bring the information you need directly to you so that you're always up-to-date with the latest in your field.
As we collect and produce a variety of personal digital materials, such as photos and music, organizing and self-archiving them is a growing challenge. As librarians, we have the expertise to help users organize their personal digital information and build their personal archiving skills.
Social networks offer opportunities for educators and researchers to stay current in their field, collaborate across distances, and showcase their work.
