Transcript

  • 1. ZOTERO Your Personal Research Assistant Presented by Darlene Fleming Walla Walla VA Medical Center
  • 2. Zotero
    • URL: zotero.org
    • Produced by:
    • Center for History and New Media
    • George Mason University
    • Funded by:
    • Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
    • Institute of Museum and Library Services
    • Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
  • 3. Zotero will allow you to:
        • Gather
        • Organize
        • Analyze
        • Share
    Citations, full text, web pages and images.
  • 4. Zotero
    • incorporates the tools of the older reference management software (i.e. EndNote) by allowing you to store bibliographic information and export it as a formatted reference.
  • 5. But then Zotero takes this further by:
    • incorporating the newer software applications (i.e. Delicious, iTunes) of:
          • interacting
          • tagging
          • searching
  • 6. Zotero runs in the Firefox web browser .
    • This must be open in order to access your research collection.
    • The Zotero pane contains your entire collection:
        • Bibliographic references
        • Whole documents
        • Files
        • Notes
        • Web pages
  • 7. This screenshot shows the three columns of the Zotero pane
    • The pane shows all your citations, collections, and notes
                                                                                                                                                            
  • 8. Zotero
    • On the next slide, I show the beginning of research work that I have begun on Caregivers’ resources. It includes information from web sites as well as books on/for caregivers.
    • The top half of the screen shows the MedlinePlus site that I have added to my research and the bottom half of the screen shows the Zotero pane.
  • 9.  
  • 10. Zotero
    • On the following slide I highlight a book that I have selected, How to Care for Your Aging Parents . You will note the bibliographic information for the book on the right pane.
  • 11.  
  • 12. Zotero
    • On the following slide, note the tool box in the right pane. One shows that tags can be added to any reference. I have created three tags for this collection thus far and they are noted in the left pane (circled in blue).

  • 14. Zotero
    • Zotero would be particularly helpful for research staff and students as a way to organize their work and citations. It can bring all the items of the research (i.e.books, articles, images, web sites) together in one collection.
  • 15. Zotero
    • Zotero certainly has library applications as well. In this initial work on caregivers’ resources that I have begun, I can see that this would be very helpful in that it would allow me to bring together a number of related resources. I would then be able to share this with interested staff.
  • 16. Zotero
    • Zotero could be helpful in collection development as well. Again, the Caregivers’ resources project could allow me to bring together a group of core resources on this topic. The books and videos could be a “wish list” that I would be able to acquire as funds became available. I could share this with other librarians who are also interested in building a collection in this area.
  • 17. Zotero
    • The “note” feature in Zotero would allow me to annotate the resources that I am considering adding to a collection or sharing with others. This could be helpful to users as they try to determine the best resource for their particular need.
  • 18. Zotero
    • There is a learning curve with Zotero. Of the assignments I have completed during this class, I definitely feel like I will need to spend much more time on Zotero to enjoy the full benefits it has to offer. The good news is that its free and it has a good support network.
