Little Things Mean a Lot: Tips and Tricks for Formatting Your Thesis - 10:00am

Are you worried about getting your thesis/dissertation into the format required by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies? Would you like to learn more about the formatting features in Microsoft Word? Our Research Commons staff are here to explain the nuts and bolts of formatting: page layout, numbering, headings, front matter, and more!

This workshop will also cover the basic resources that are available to help you write your thesis/dissertation, including a thesis template!

Workshops are held on a bi-weekly basis, and graduate students at any stage of the writing process are welcome!


Citation Management Using Zotero - 9:00am

If you need to manage large numbers of references and citations as part of your research, teaching, or administrative work, citation management tools are for you. These tools provide a simple way to store, organize and retrieve your citations in an effective manner, and can also help you in formatting in-text citations and bibliographies in your work.

This introductory hands-on workshop briefly covers the main concepts of citation management and gives detailed instruction for installing and using Zotero, a popular citation management tool.
