Attend a Live Session!

We understand that some users may feel more comfortable attending a live instructional session rather than reading through a tutorial. If that applies to you, please register for our citation resources webinar to have a live walk-thru of the information contained in this guide, as well as a discussion of other tools such as Turnitin, Grammarly, and Academic Writer.
