Zotero Basics Workshop

February 24, 12-2pm (additional session on March 1, 10-12pm)

Zotero is a free bibliography management tool that helps you collect citations for your research and generate entries for notes and bibliographies. The workshops are designed for graduate students, but UCSB faculty and other affiliated researchers are welcome to attend.

The "Zotero Basics" workshops last two hours and will cover all aspects of using Zotero to manage citations for your personal research. While the basic workshops are designed for beginners, tips will be shared that will also help experienced users make better use of Zotero.

Please sign up for a specific session by filling out the registration form. This will ensure that you receive the pre-workshop email with instructions for what you need to do on your computer ahead of time.

Intro to R for Data Visualization Workshop

The UCSB Library is hosting a workshop Introducing R for Data Visualization next week. This event is an example-driven 2-day workshop. Learners will start with basic information about R syntax and RStudio notebook interface, with a focus on visualization methods in R.

Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems between sessions.

No previous experience with programming required.
