short presentations with interactive, “hands-on” components, as well as the opportunity for participants to exchange their own experiences with Zotero.
Zotero is a free citation manager that allows you to save citation information while searching and browsing the Web. With a single click, Zotero saves citations and enables you to create customized bibliographies in standard citation styles, including MLA, Chicago and APA. This workshop will provide an overview of basic features of Zotero such as: installing Zotero, adding citations to your Zotero library, organizing and managing your citations, creating a bibliography, and using the Microsoft Word plug-in to easily insert citations from Zotero into your documents.
The workshop will include a short presentation and hands-on components, therefore the participants are encouraged to bring their personal computers so that they may download and interact with the program.
Those that have already used Zotero are welcome to the workshop and they can exchange their own experiences with the software.
