  • Managing Citations with Zotero: Tired of painstakingly constructing citations for papers and juggling endless stacks of article printouts? Are the inconsistencies of database-generated citations bogging you down? Streamline your research and citation process with Zotero! This hands on workshop will get you started with collecting and organizing research right from your web browser, as well as generating citations for your works cited or reference lists with this free citation management tool. Note: Zotero is a free citation management tool for the Firefox web browser on Mac and PC. There is also a standalone version for use with other web browsers. We will experiment in class with the Firefox browser using library computers. Please feel free to bring your personal laptop to class – the instructor will be available to assist students with setting up Zotero on personal devices immediately after class.
