Library Workshop - October 27, 2023

The aim of this workshop is to learn how to find relevant research papers for your PHTH 516 assignment and to use the Vancouver Style for your references.  For these we will be using

  • Medline (Ovid) for efficient and effective searching, and
  • Zotero for citation management.

These skills will help you succeed in other courses (especially PHTH 552) and into your professional practice.

To make best use of this opportunity, bring your assignment topic, questions about searches you have tried, and any papers you have already found.

Citing Sources and Copyright

Citing your references

Citation management tools and apps allow users to create personal citation databases by importing references from databases and catalogues.  The references can be organized into categories, or libraries, and  used to quickly add in text citations and create bibliographies or reference lists. 

Examples of citation management tools: Endnote, Mendeley and Zotero.
