"You Can't Get a Degree from Google University" - Critically Evaluating Internet Sources: Tuesday, Oct. 27, 6-8 pm MT  

The Internet can be an excellent tool for carrying out research, and for finding reliable information and up-to-the minute news and data. But the information you find online has not always been written by an expert, nor has it always been vetted through a traditional publishing or editing process. This means that information found online can be very difficult to verify and to trust, and so must be looked at with a critical eye. 

This workshop from AU Library and the Alice B. Donahue Library & Archives will teach you how to evaluate internet resources through a combination of instruction and interactive web-based activities.

Zotero and Mendeley Citation Management Tools: Tuesday, Nov. 17, 10-11 am MT

Citation management tools are a great way to keep all of your research material in one place. AU Librarians will show you how to install Zotero and Mendeley, and how to use these free tools to import references, organize your research, create bibliographies, and more. We’ll also cover Microsoft Word plugins, editing citations, collaborating and sharing, and more.
