Transcript

  • 1. Zotero Evangelism for Grad Students Rebecca Onion 9.16.11
  • 2. What Is It?
    • “A free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. It lives right where you do your work—in the web browser itself.”
    • CHNM
    • But what does it look like?
    • Why’s it better than Endnote? Or is it?
    • http://chronicle.com/blogs/profhacker/zotero-vs-endnote/33157
  • 3. Basic Functions
    • Tutorials I made for my undergrads, covering basic input methods:
    • http://americanchildhoods.com/resources/zotero/building-your-zotero-library/
    • http://americanchildhoods.com/resources/zotero/adding-zotero-citations-in-word/
    • http://americanchildhoods.com/resources/zotero/adding-zotero-citations-in-openoffice/
  • 4. Advantages of Zotero for planning future research
    • Use an ever-evolving system of folders to contain and correlate leads
    • Put items in more than one folder
    • Organize items for future revisions
    • SEARCHABLE
    • Be sure to back up! Pay CHNM, or use www.carbonite.com
  • 5. Inputting Archival Materials
    • Jpegs go in folder on desktop – make sure to include metadata in some way, either in the photo or in your folder name
    • At your leisure, open up jpegs in Preview, make sure they’re small enough (do a save-as and decrease quality), turn into PDFs ( http://www.pdfsam.org/ is free) and combine
    • Create Zotero record, input your own metadata, and attach PDF
    • Rename PDF using record metadata
  • 6. Entertain Yourself
  • 7. Digital Hoarding (am I a Collyer brother?)
  • 8. Link to this Slideshow
