Transcript

  • 1. Zotero for Medical Professionals: An Introduction Lorena O’English Washington State University Libraries [email_address] * Twitter: wsulorena RML Rendezvous , April 14 th , 2010 http://www.zotero.org/blog/introducing-zoterosquare/
  • 2. The Problem…
    • Keeping track of websites, articles, gray literature, and books for scholarly (and practitioner) research can be difficult and require complex and/or multiple systems
    • Reference manager software = $-$$$
    • Research is often collaborative – but most reference management solutions are not (or at least not very…)
    • Value: building up a library of references and papers to have on hand for use (including after degree(s) earned and library access no longer guaranteed)
    • Value: archiving not just articles & bibliographic data, but also document meaning and significance – and making it all easily findable and accessible
  • 3. What is Zotero?*
    • A reference manager
    • Works with open webpages and article databases (many automatically through Zotero Site translators) and more
    • Interoperable: Can import and export citations to EndNote and other reference manager formats (via RIS standard) using multiple citation styles
    • Web-based collaboration and discovery/recommender tools
    • includes Microsoft Word 2003/7 plug-in for attaching citations (in “correct” style) to documents; also works with OpenOffice
    • Added value beyond citation: Allows tags, notes, and screenshots to be associated with articles & other resources
    • Can attach (and search) associated PDFs, and attach other items
    • From the Center for History and New Media, at George Mason University – open source
  • 4. http://www.zotero.org www.zotero.org
  • 5. Adding Items to Your Zotero Library
    • A word about preferences…
  • 6. Open URL and Site Translators Link Resolver (provides access to an appropriate copy for your users, if available, when it recognizes embedded COinS metadata)
  • 7. Adding a PubMed record – Open URL-compatible w/ site translator
  • 8. Zotero Item Record from browser-bar automatic capture (Open URL) Does not capture everything that you might want…
  • 9. Adding from a PMID, DOI, ISBN
    • 11
  • 10. Zotero Item Record from DOI capture Notice this one did not capture all important data – this will have to be filled in manually ( why? )
  • 11. Options for Adding Items to Your Zotero Library
    • In a Zotero-compatible database (Open URL and has Zotero SiteTranslator)
      • Look for the icon in browser URL box
    • From a Zotero-compatible publisher
      • Look for the icon in your browser URL box
      • Generally will also download fulltext article PDF if available and appropriate Zotero setting preference has been set
    • From a PMID, DOI or ISBN
      • Paste in the number using Add Item by Identifier
    • From a database that allows you to export reference files (via EndNote/.ris format)
      • Email the .RIS file to yourself then open or import it into your Z library; Does Not Always Work, so have a backup!
    • From the export as .RIS option in your link resolver
      • Email the .RIS file to yourself then open or import it into your Z library; Does Not Always Work so have a backup!
    • Manually – email yourself all the info or write it down; add later
    • From a website (some websites have their own Zotero translators, e.g. Flickr, YouTube, The New York Times) -
  • 12. Beyond the Article…
    • Available item formats
  • 13. Writing and Citing: Citation Styles
    • Many citation styles available
  • 14. Writing and Citing: Formatting
    • Using Zotero in Word
    Insert citation Edit citation Insert bibliography Edit bibliography Zotero refresh Set doc preferences Remove Zotero codes
  • 15. Added Value…
    • Saving webpages
    • Webpage screenshots that can be highlighted and annotated
    • Collections, subcollections, and group collections
    • Tags and the tag selector box
    • Notes
    • Related – associate related items
    • Locate and View
    • Searching: The Database of Me
      • PDF, txt, and RTF
      • basic and advanced
      • Saved searches
  • 16. Tags: Organize and Connect Filter by one or more tags Add or edit tags – note autosuggest for consistency; tags can be content or process
  • 17. Notes: The Workhorse Tool
    • Why did you add this article, anyway?
  • 18. Search: The Database of You
    • Bibliographical info, tags, and notes
    • Attached files that are PDF, txt, or RTF (!!!!)
    • If a file isn’t a PDF you can convert it then upload and attach it
    • If you scan a document it will be an image file – you can attach it to a Zotero item record and then view it, read it, or print it in your Zotero library, but you can’t search inside its contents – you’ll need to convert it to PDF (Adobe Acrobat Professional, etc.)
    • Saved seaches – another way to filter
  • 19. Zotero in the Cloud (2.x)
    • Requires creating a Zotero account
    • Can sync your own sources between different computers (and even save documents online with freemium storage options)
      • Warning: It’s all or nothing at this time…
    • Can create groups and share citations with others (publicly or privately)
    • Can find and follow others with similar interests and use their public Zotero libraries as databases to find good resources – and add them to your library
      • Profile and group search is pretty wretched at this time…
    • Can back your resources up on the Web (NOT a substitute for other methods of backing up!)
  • 20. A Zotero Profile
  • 21. A Zotero Online Library
  • 22. A Zotero Online Library Item Zotero site translator icon
  • 23. http://www.zotero.org/loenglish
