Introducing Zotero, your personal research assistant!

Have you heard the news about the University’s new implementation of Zotero? You might be curious what Zotero is and what it does. Zotero is a free online tool that helps you store and organize your research sources (journal articles, book chapters, etc.) Zotero works as a desktop app on your device, but also has a browser connector to help you gather citations from your sources and a web-based version, too. Zotero generates bibliographies of your stored citations either as stand-alone lists or as a plug-in installed in your word processing software. Imagine how much easier (and stress-free!) your research workload could be once you get started working with Zotero! 

The library will be hosting several Zotero workshops this semester. The first two workshops will cover the Zotero basics and will be held in Computer Lab 1 (room 109) on October 17 from 3-4pm, and again on November 9 from 4-5pm. The Advanced Zotero workshop will be held in Computer Lab 1 (room 109) from 10-11am. It’s highly recommended that you attend one of the basic workshops if you are a beginner to attend the Advanced workshop!
