Whether you’re in the midst of researching or writing your project, the free bibliographic management tool Zotero could save you A LOT of time. Join me for an introductory workshop on this free Firefox plug-in that helps you gather, manage, analyze, and share your resources. Learn the basic functionality of the program as well as how to integrate your Zotero library with word-processing software for footnotes and bibliographies -- Yes, you can change the citation style of your book or dissertation from Chicago to APA with the click of a button!
Since we’ll be capturing citation information from catalogs, databases, and web pages, a basic knowledge of web-based research tools and resources is suggested for this class. If you’d like to bring in your laptop and follow along, just download the Firefox web browser before you arrive and I’ll help you install Zotero. Install Firefox here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/
