Have you heard of Zotero (www.zotero.org)? It's a free citation management application that's available online and on most computers in the library. Zotero can help you organize and manage bibliographic references for papers, projects, and reports by grabbing citation information from library catalogs, article databases, websites, and more with a simple click of the mouse. It can also automatically add citations within your papers in Microsoft Word and create your bibliography or works cited page for you according to dozens of common formatting standards.
ISR is offering an opportunity to help you learn how to start using this time-saving tool today! Two informational sessions are available (both will be held in the Bibliographic Instruction Room on the lower level of the library):
- Wednesday, February 2 from 11:00am-12:00noon
- Thursday, February 3 from 7:00-8:00pm
All are invited! If you'd like to attend, please sign up for a session by visiting https://www.beloit.edu/scripts/signup/zotero_signup.php
Register soon, as only 12 spots are available at each session.
If you'd like to know more about Zotero but are unable to attend either session, please email Josh Hickman to arrange an individual appointment.
