Collaborate through technology; literature reviews

Sifting through the literature can be a daunting task. Digging through 1000’s of papers in your area of interest trying to find the most relevant ones. Then how do you store the stacks of papers that you have collected. Working with colleagues can help reduce the workload but then how do you share what you found. There are many technology based solutions that available – one of which that I have discovered recently through one of our sessions on the DIT MSc in E-learning is Endnote Web. The screencast below shows how you can share papers with colleagues after your long hard search through the literature

For more detailed instructions on using Endnote I would recommend your friendly DIT librarian as a great start
