Finding the best tool for your research and using it efficiently is a challenge for all new students. The Stanford Libraries offer workshops to help you increase your skill level, explore new resources and network with other students. If you don’t have time to attend a workshop, you can review these videos on some of the research tools provided by the library.
Workshops are scheduled during September, October and November with the first sessions during the week of September 28.
The topics we cover include:
- citation management tools such as Mendeley, EndNote and Refworks
- techniques to find research articles
- managing your data and tools for data query
- Overleaf for LaTeX projects
