This workshop focuses on using Zotero, a free, open source tool for citation management. There will also be opportunities to ask general questions about citing works and giving credit. Bring your laptop and get ready to take back control of your citations! (The workshop is the same on both days.)

3/2, 5:00 p.m. - Organize Your Images
In this workshop you will use Tropy to organize your creative or academic research images. We will also discuss best practices for preserving digital images and the basics of image copyright. Bring your laptop with any images you’re ready to organize! 

3/8, 5:00 p.m. - File Fiercely
File management may sound boring, but building a consistent practice is key to making your research life easier. Learn more about managing and keeping your digital files safe at this workshop!

3/16, 5:00 p.m. - Explore More
New tools for researchers are coming out all the time - and we want to share them with you! This workshop will review new, free tools available to up your research game and streamline your work. Even if you already love options like Zotero and Tropy, it helps to explore more! 

4/6, 5:00 p.m. - Research Beyond SAIC
Have you wondered how you’ll do research once you don’t have access to Flaxman’s databases and resources? This workshop will focus on using common tools to find open resources and other useful information on the open web. Discover how to research beyond your time at SAIC!
