This guide provides some notes from our Zotero workshop, gives you links to get you started, and will offer some tips and tricks to help you make better use of Zotero.
These workshops are offered to graduate students several times per year. To inquire about the next scheduled workshop, please use the "Email me" link in the contact box.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to…
Describe the function and utility of a citation manager
Install Zotero onto their operating system, add-on in browser, & sync tab
Identify file types that can be saved in Zotero (books, journal articles, webpages, PDFs and images)
Collect citations from library search tools, the web, or enter records from scratch
Identify options to organize compiled resources using Zotero collections (folders), notes, tags, attachments, and collaborate
Create a bibliography
Identify limitations of Zotero (pulling in metadata - use an index rather, than just pulling in a PDF)
