Thank you to Library Videographers Amy Heggie, Gisele Lucia, and Mike McDermott.

Happy Birthday Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

February 27th is the birthday of Bowdoin alum and library co-namesake Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Class of 1825). As has been the custom for many years, an anonymous donor has provided a floral arrangement to mark the occasion.

Also celebrating the occasion is Garrison Keillor’s Writer’s Almanac website, which included a mention of Longfellow’s birthday this morning.

Citation Management Workshops: Spring 2012


EndNote or Zotero? Or both?

Take one or all of the workshops described below to learn about tools to manage citations.

What’s that? Not able to attend one of the scheduled sessions? Contact us! Individual EndNote and citation management instruction and consultations can be scheduled at your convenience.

To register or if you have questions, contact Karen Jung at 725-3311 or kjung@bowdoin.edu.


Zotero is an alternative for managing citations that resides in your web browser, “right where you do your work.” It can be used as a stand-alone manager, or in conjunction with EndNote.

Friday, 3/2/12, 2:00-3:00 PM – ECR, H-L Library

Thursday, 4/5/12, 12:00 – 1:00 PM – ECR, H-L Library

EndNote 101

EndNote is bibliographic citation management software tool that allows you to maintain a “personal library” of references and citations. It can also import citation information from the Library’s Catalog, online indexes, and databases. If you use Microsoft Word, you can insert citations from your personal libraries directly into your documents and create bibliographies from those citations. This workshop will teach you to use EndNote and EndNote Web (both of which are easy to use, but not intuitive) in just one hour.
