Workshop offers expert tips on Flow, a citation/reference tool

October 29, 2014

Students and faculty working on research, seeking intuitive ways to manage the different sources they’re collecting, are invited to learn how to go with the Flow.

Flow is a new citation/reference management tool, available through the Libraries website, for use by Rutgers students and faculty. Flow was created by ProQuest, which also developed RefWorks. Although both tools can help researchers organize their references, create bibliographies, format papers, and share their collections, they each have certain distinct strengths and features.

Student and faculty researchers are invited to attend a workshop on Wednesday October 29th, presented by company representatives, which will highlight the unique features that Flow offers. The Flow workshop, from 2:30 – 4:00 pm, will include:

  • a demonstration of Flow
  • the differences between Flow and RefWorks
  • the research situations best suited to use of Flow
  • a guided walk-through of how to migrate citations from RefWorks and/or other tools to Flow
  • what’s forthcoming in Flow
  • questions and answers session

This workshop will be held on the Newark campus, in room 445 of Conklin Hall. It will be video-conferenced to room 102K in ASB Annex I, on the Busch campus in Piscataway, and to room 256 in the Paul Robeson library, on the Camden campus.

The event will also be streamed live on the web at https://vcenter.njvid.net/videos/livestreams/page1/ and can be watched on demand at https://vcenter.njvid.net/videos/.  To register for the training session, please send an e-mail to oirt@rutgers.edu
