FAQs

Question: What are some strategies for organizing references for use in a class project or assignment?

Use built-in tools in the database. In CINAHL you can put your best papers into My Folder (at the top of the screen) and then store them in a folder for your project or class. Please see below a quick video showing how to do this.

Another strategy is to use a citation management tool such as Zotero. Here is more information about Zotero: https://guides.library.ubc.ca/citationmanagement/Zotero There are also library workshops on Zotero on March 4th and March 25th. Please see: the UBC Library Calendar to register for these free workshops.
