  • BibleWorks (introductory): 2:00-3:30, Library Training Room (3132)
  • Accordance (introductory): 4:00-5:30, Library Training Room (3132)

The introductory sessions will cover the basics of the BibleWorks (2:00-3:30) and Accordance (4:00-5:30) software packages. This includes an overview of what each software package offers. We will also cover how to find specific texts, gather basic lexical and morphological data, do simple searches, and export Unicode text to other programs like Word. No prior knowledge of the software is presumed for these sessions.

Advanced: Wednesday, November 11, 2015
  • BibleWorks (advanced): 2:00-3:30, Library Training Room (3132)
  • Accordance (advanced): 4:00-5:30, Library Training Room (3132)

The advanced sessions will focus on performing more advanced searches based on morphology, syntax, and other criteria. We will also explore how to use the software to assist in exegetical problems and questions. Basic knowledge of the software along with some knowledge of either Greek or Hebrew is presumed for these sessions, though all are welcome.

Wednesday, November 4, 2015
  • Zotero: 1:00-2:00, Library Training Room (3132)
  • EndNote: 2:30-3:30, Library Training Room (3132)
Thursday, November 5, 2015
  • Zotero: 10:00-11:00, Library Training Room (3132)
  • EndNote: 11:30-12:30, Library Training Room (3132)

Come to an hour-long workshop on how to create and manage your bibliographies and footnotes with Zotero or EndNote — and save yourself hours of frustration! Though each session will focus on either Zotero or EndNote (see dates and times above for each program), we will also look at other similar software. The instructor will stay for an extra half hour after the end of the class to make sure there is plenty of time for hands-on learning and your individual questions.
