Information Management

Introduction to Information Management for Doctoral Students

Tuesday, September 21, 9:00 am – 10:00 am CST

Doctoral students interact with vast quantities of information from numerous sources that come in many formats and in various languages.  It is a daunting challenge to manage and document information repeatedly and for multiple projects, including doctoral dissertation research as well as unimagined projects in the distant future–a problem reported by established scholars who find they want to use a source they encountered while working on a past project, but might not have used in the final, published version, and can no longer precisely identify and therefore retrieve. In this session, we will review different types of citations and participants will learn how to choose among the various citation management systems. In addition, instructors will discuss note-taking strategies to curate and store information effectively. This session is open to all doctoral students.
