Turnitin & Endnote: the necessities

Posted on May 01, 2018

On Saturdays, 24 February and 10 March 2018, the Merensky 2 Library’s Research Commons hosted Turnitin and Endnote workshops, aimed at Masters and PhD students. 

Initially only supposed to have happened once, a second workshop was organised due to popular demand.  The first workshop was received well and with much gratitude. “This was a very useful workshop to attend. Thank you for assisting us in such a matter with our studies. I would also like to thank the organizer of the workshop for providing us with a full meal in lunch time”, is a comment taken from the feedback requested from the attendees.  There is always room for improvement – in this case, there was some difficulty regarding Endnote for Mac Laptops. 

This was addressed in the second workshop as the Research Commons cares for the opinions and satisfaction of postgraduate students.  For this session, a separate speaker was arranged specifically for the Mac users.  This upped the positive responses.  “I am grateful for the time you spent to train us. This will surely go a long way into my research”, is another comment extracted from feedback. 

Both sessions had fantastic turnouts, with students who travelled long distances to attend a workshop they thought essential in their research process.  “Very important postgraduate session. My feeling is that it should be compulsory for all first year registered postgrads and should be held in each faculty”, is a comment from the first session’s feedback.

The Research Commons looks forward to assisting in furthering the development of skills amongst postgraduates.
