Training by resources and tools

The Library invites you to discover search and information management tools, or to broaden your use of those you already know.

This workshop is for people who want to start using Zotero, a free tool that enables to collect, organize and share bibliographic references. Zotero spares its users from spending troublesome hours on the creation of a bibliography. Very useful for anyone who writes reports or theses, Zotero will be useful all along the curriculum and beyond.

We can also organise in-depth training with specialised tools, hosted by external service providers. Example: one-day training session in Uniprot (Universal Protein Resource) was organised for the Faculty of Life Sciences.
