Mendeley is one of the many free reference management resources available to academics. A program that can be used across technological devices, Mendeley boasts an expansive social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with your colleagues and peers, and discover new research in your field. In this workshop, we will learn how to optimize Mendeley for major research projects (such as dissertations and manuscripts). The workshop will take place in two parts: we will first receive a walkthrough of the program and discuss how it benefits academic research. We will then receive hands-on guidance on how to use the program, along with tips for more productive citation management and academic writing.

Computers will be available to use during the workshop, however participants are free to bring their own laptops. Participants will also be required to sign up for a free Mendeley account if they wish to participate in the guided tutorial portion of the workshop. For more information, please visit Mendeley’s official website.

This workshop is part of The Friday Table, a series of weekly Friday afternoon events organized by the Graduate Steering Committee for the Centre for Transnational Cultural Analysis (CTCA) and the Institute for Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC) at Carleton University. We aim to bolster the Centre’s mandate to bring together scholars and students working with transnational approaches to studies in the humanities through regular, informal workshops, roundtables, film screenings, and discussion groups. The Friday Table seeks to foster collegiality and promote student-led research-creation. Events are free and open to all.
