    Zoteroforgradstudentsfinal Zoteroforgradstudentsfinal Presentation Transcript

    • Zotero Evangelism for Grad Students Rebecca Onion 9.16.11
    • 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
    • Basic Functions
      • Tutorials I made for my undergrads, covering basic input and output:
      • Building Your Library: http://americanchildhoods.com/resources/zotero/building-your-zotero-library/
      • Citations in Word: http://americanchildhoods.com/resources/zotero/adding-zotero-citations-in-word/
      • Citations in OpenOffice: http://americanchildhoods.com/resources/zotero/adding-zotero-citations-in-openoffice/
    • 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
    • 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
    • Entertain Yourself
    • Digital Hoarding (am I a Collyer brother?)
