2L Zotero Classes

Filed under: Free Web — Tags: — uhlawlibrary @ 9:02 am

Considering that 2Ls have Second Year Seminar this semester, the Instructional Services Librarian will offer classes on Zotero to students on Mondays and Wednesdays for the first three weeks of the term in the Law Library room 117; from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.  However, it probably will not take the entire hour to get you started using Zotero.

To get the most benefit from this class, bring your laptops, notebooks, or netbooks.  If you don’t currently use Firefox as your web browser, install it prior to class.

What is Zotero?

Zotero means “to learn; to master” in Albanian.  It is a bibliographic management tool like EndNotes or XRef.  Unlike those two examples, Zotero is free.  It works within the Firefox browser as a browser plugin.

Why do you want to use Zotero?

While you are doing your research you can use Zotero to automatically capture, import and archive item information and files.  When you are finished with your research, Zotero can build the bibliography for you.  Best of all, if your computer crashes, you haven’t lost your research.

When are the classes?

Weds. 1/20, 1/27, 2/3 at 2:00pm-3:00pm
Mons. 1/25 and 2/1 at 2:00pm-3:00pm

Where?

Law Library Room 117

No need to sign up, just show up.  First come, first serve.  There are approximately 20 seats in the classroom.
