If you’re like most professors I know, you’d like to keep up with technology, but you just don’t have the time to sit down and spend a few hours learning how to use a new application. We understand. Give us 40 minutes of your time on the 13th and we’ll get you up and running, so you can enjoy the productivity enhancement with minimal time investment.
There will be two sessions, one at 12 noon and one at 1 PM EDT on October 13. The later session will focus on more advanced topics, while the earlier one is appropriate for folks with no prior experience. Please download and install Mendeley before the session so if you have any questions you’ll be able to ask them during the event.
We’ll discuss topics such as:
- What Mendeley is (and what it’s not)
- Writing grants & papers with Mendeley
- How Mendeley works with your existing information systems
- Organizing, sharing, and discovering research with Mendeley
- Mendeley’s role in the future of research
William Gunn, PhD & Head of Academic Outreach, will be conducting the later session and Ricardo Vidal, PhD candidate in Bioinformatics at Queens University, will be conducting the earlier session. There will be plenty of time for questions after and during the session. Please download and install Mendeley before the session begins. If this time doesn’t work for you, please check out the session schedule below or see our events page for an event near you. We will put up a recording of the session afterwards, so check this post or our Youtube channel.
