Citation Management Using ProQuest Flow - 3:00pm

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 hands-on workshop introduces briefly the main concepts of citation management and gives detailed instruction for using ProQuest flow, a popular citation management tool licensed by UBC Library.


Are you new to ProQuest Flow entirely, or do you have advanced-user questions? Email research.commons@ubc.ca to set up a one-on-one appointment with one of our citation management experts.
