Do you keep hearing about the importance of using a reference management software? Are you concerned you’re not using yours to its full potential? This workshop will give an overview of the basics of Zotero. You will learn how to use this tool to keep track of citations and store primary or secondary research materials.
Join us on Monday, 12 April 2021 at 1pm EST / 6 pm UK for a walk through on setting up Zotero and how to use its many capabilities. Registration is free and open to all.
This event was inspired by our February RSVP Digital Salon brainstorming session, where members expressed much interest in reference management software.
A Hands-On Workshop
This will be a hands-on workshop, so please make sure you download and install the Zotero desktop app as well as the Zotero Connector plugin for the internet browser you use for research. Zotero is an open-source reference management software and free to use. If your library gets larger than 300 MB, you can choose to pay for back-ups.
To use Zotero to its full potential, including back-ups and syncing on multiple devices, make sure to register for a free account too.
