Information Literacy and Media Competence
Information Management - a critical part of the faculty research process is keeping track of references (citations)—journal papers, books, web pages, images, quotations, etc.—that support your research so that you can properly cite them in your work using a required publication style. Reference Management Tools for Research and Writing lists recommended "reference management programs" available to HSU faculty.
