Q: Are there any other citation managers, like Zotero, that can be utilized? What are some of the differences between Zotero and alternatives?

A: Yes, there are other citation managers that are available to use. OSU Libraries supports (e.g. provides training on): EndNote, EndNote Web (now being called EndNote Basic), Mendeley, and Zotero. Check out the quick comparison guide: http://guides.library.oregonstate.edu/c.php?g=359201&p=2426080 to see similarities and differences among these tools.

 

Q: What library resources are available that can be accessed off campus by students?

A: Any resource that OSU Libraries subscribes to or has access to (this includes databases, online journals, e-books) is available to you as a student. If you want to access these resources from off-campus, do so by starting from the library website so that you get the link to authenticate with your ONID username and password. That authentication process is key to allowing you to access library resources from off-campus. If you are on campus, you will not need to authenticate.
