Atelier Multimédia: “Using ZOTERO”
During the presentation of the Library Electronic resources, the Library introduction to historians and the Library Guided Tours to Historians (tomorrow Thursday the 13th, 10.30 to 12.30 last guided tour this year…), it became clear that many of you wanted to have an introduction to Zotero, the web management software offered free of charge by the George Mason University in Virginia.
So, we will do an introductory course as an anticipated Atelier Multimédia Zotero Session.
The Atelier will only start Wednesday the 10th of October with an introduction to bibliographical and other databases that the library offers to support the work of historians.
So, next Wednesday the 19th of September 2012 in Villa Schifanoia, Sala Europa, 2-5 p.m. We will do an introductory course for everybody (2-3 p.m.) and after we will help you individually with installing and working with Zotero. The course will be as following:
Using ZOTERO to capture, organize and index web contents and bibliographies
Zotero is an Open Source and freely accessible web management tool which serves the interdisciplinary community of scholars. Zotero is developed at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University in Virginia (USA).
EUI documentation about Zotero is available in the library and you may wish also to follow the news and the tips offered for who’s part of the Zotero worldwide community reading the EUI Zotero Blog.
In order to follow the Zotero course properly, especially if you want to receive individual information, you should bring your personal laptop and you should have installed the following software’s:
1. Firefox web browser for Mac or Windows here (At the moment the last available version is 15.0.1)
