Getting Organized: Modern Knowledge Management for Researchers

28.06.2024 | 09:00 - 17:00

Articles, videos, podcasts, conversations - everywhere, you can find potentially relevant ideas, information, and insights for your own research. This hands-on workshop teaches techniques, tools, and workflows to manage this abundance of information productively.

In the first part, we explore methods to enhance time management when searching for new information and creating notes. The second part offers a practical introduction to tools and workflows that assist us in efficiently storing various content and retrieving it quickly when needed. The focus is on the open-source literature management program Zotero and the free knowledge management software Obsidian. We will explain basic functions and relevant terminology, but also cover extensions, advanced settings, and efficient workflows. By the end of the workshop, all participants will have a functioning knowledge management system and will be able to adapt and expand it according to their subject-specific needs.

No technical background knowledge is assumed. However, participants should be able / have the rights to install new software on their system.
