LIBR 3000E: Zotero: The “Killer App”

Location: Brenda Wallace Computer Room

Content: Once you have identified relevant references, Zotero allows you to quickly save them—and then incorporate them into a paper you are writing in almost any format you choose—APA, MLA, Chicago, Vancouver and many more. It also generates a bibliography of the references you have used at the end of your paper. This is the one tool fourth year students wish they had heard about in first year. We recommend you bring your laptop with the latest version of Firefox installed to this session.
