​University Libraries to host research paper workshops

The University Libraries will host two back-to-back workshops to teach attendees tips and tricks for formatting research papers and citations today in Gorgas Library Instruction Room 104. The first hour-long workshop at 5 p.m. will focus on formatting an academic paper in Microsoft Word. This tutorial will show attendees how to best use the software, including shortcuts for styles and templates, so they can format their papers quickly and have plenty of time to work on the actual content of their paper. The second workshop at 6 p.m. is a more in-depth look at how to format citations and notes using Microsoft Word. The References feature of Microsoft Word includes adding and editing footnotes, endnotes, citations and bibliographies for a variety of citation styles. Both workshops are free, but attendees are asked to register for one or both workshops on the Academic Technologies blog at bit.ly.acadtech. Seating is limited, so the best way to guarantee a seat is to register in advance. For more information, visit the Academic Technologies blog or contact Melissa Green at mfgreen1@ua.edu.
