Within the activities of the Network Engineering Department for the first semester, the department held a seminar entitled ” Management of References using Mendeley Reference Manager” given by Dr. Sarmad M.Hadi.
Mendeley is a free referencing and academic social network software. It allows to collect, manage, store, share and use research papers and articles, as well as generate bibliographies in multiple citation styles. It can be used with MS Word to add citations during typing as well as compile a reference list at the end of assignment or paper or thesis etc…., It is useful for researchers who manage a significant number of journal articles and research papers in their studies. Mendeley is free to use but it should be used wisely with an accessible account and backed up on a timely basis.
A number of professors and engineers from the college attend this seminar and a discussion session follows where questions and answers are shared.
