  • How are you managing citations? Share your feedback

    Are you struggling with citations? Or do you have a great system for managing all your references for essays or scholarly papers?

    We want to hear about it! Please take a few moments to answer a short Library survey on citation management, which refers to the use of systems or software to store and organize references and format in-text citations and bibliographies. Results from the survey will be used to help the Library develop a strategy to support users’ citation management needs. Your responses will be anonymous.

    Anyone at Brock can respond. Survey participants can enter a draw for one of two $25 Brock cards.

    The survey closes Dec. 6 at 5 pm.

    Questions? Contact Elizabeth Yates, Liaison and Scholarly Communication Librarian at eyates@brocku.ca or x4469
