Are you tired of copying & pasting your bibliography together from previous research (and from emails, notes, post-its, etc.)? Do you wish that you could find that article that you read last month, or that book you used for a paper last semester? You should consider using a citation management app. This session will focus on using Zotero, one of the freeware programs that you can use to build a personal library of citations (and even PDFs) to refer back to later on. You can also create your bibliography from within the Zotero tools. This will be a hands-on session. (Note that a different citation manager - EndNote - will be covered in a separate session.)
As part of our Refined Researchers series, Ron Schwertfeger will be hosting an open class on using the Zotero citation manager. This class will be in Library room 214, from 2:00pm to 2:45pm.
Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, and Guests are all invited to attend. TARGET AUDIENCE: Anyone who wants to start using Zotero - graduate students in particular.
No reservation necessary, but it will be helpful to contact Ron at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (256)824-6713.
