Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share research.

The Library subscribes to Sage Research Methods Online, a database with over 1,000 videos, books, handbooks, and journal articles focusing on research design and methods in the social sciences. This Thursday, September 6th, a trainer from Sage will lead workshops in Library L17 on using the tool. Snacks will be provided!
Each semester, Academic Support Services and Library staff host workshops for students on general study skills, research skills, quantitative skills, and senior thesis-writing. In an effort to make it easier for students to find out about upcoming workshops, the DoJo and the Library have created a combined workshop list.
It’s probably time to start writing your papers. New to using EndNote or Zotero? Need a refresher on how to create a bibliography or cite while you write? We can help. Join us for one of our 30 minute drop-in workshops.

Zotero and EndNote are two citation management software packages available to Reed students. Citation managers allow you to create your own personal research database to easily collect, organize , and format references. Learning to use a citation manager will help you save time when creating bibliographies.
What is fair use? Who holds the copyright on your thesis? Why does citing images and data matter in academia?
Join Reed College librarians and students as we talk about these questions and more in a panel discussion on Copyright and Your Thesis. This interactive session will cover what you need to know about images, data, & fair use. Although we’ll focus on copyright and theses, everyone is welcome. Bring questions! Snacks and conversation starters provided.
L17 is on the lower level of the library. (Get directions at the front Circ desk)
The new Library System is coming on December 23, 2013. Learn about the new system at an info session, open to all members of the Reed community. If you are unable to make it to one of the sessions, talk to a librarian about the new interface. Refreshments will be served at all sessions.
If you’ve been interested in learning how to use EndNote like a pro, drop into one of the joint Library/CUS EndNote sessions.
