MindMapping Are you using mind mapping tools such as MindManager, FreeMind or XMind? And reference management tools such as JabRef, Endnote, or Zotero? And do you sometimes even create bookmark in PDFs? Découvrir Zotero en 4 heures : retours sur la formation du 8 juin 2011 Comment former efficacement à Zotero en une demi-journée ? Cette question nous nous la posons maintenant depuis quelques années... L'objectif de ce billet est de dresser un petit bilan de la formation que Franziska et moi avons organisée à l'université Paris Ouest début juin. Dans le cadre de la formation aux outils informatiques pour les historiens, nous procédons en deux temps : formation "magistrale" de deux heures (mise en contexte, normes bibliographiques, démonstration et présentation des fonctionnalités principales de Zotero) ; application pratique en salle informatique de deux heures (un peu moins compte tenu du temps nécessaire au démarrage des machines...). Le 8 juin dernier, nous étions donc à Nanterre pour former un groupe de doctorants venus de plusieurs écoles doctorales (le tutoriel réalisé à cette occasion est toujours disponible ici).

OWL Coming Soon: A new look for our same great content! We're working hard this summer on a redesign of the Purdue OWL. Worry not! Our navigation menu and content will remain largely the same. If you are having trouble locating a specific resource, please visit the search page or the Site Map. How to choose the best online citation tools « Fourcultures Just as I finally get used to loving Zotero, it looks like Mendeley is set to claim my heart. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, these are on-line citation tools for academic research and writing. They use various different methods for collecting and manipulating metadata relating to books, journals, papers and websites – and then linking it all together automagically. They hold out the promise of automating activities that until now have been painstaking and laborious for researchers, and of creating new opportunities for collaboration that never existed before. But there is a down side.
