"Where No Bibliography Has Gone Before: Researching With Zotero"

Zotero is a free research tool that lives inside the Firefox browser, capturing bibliographical data from WorldCat, JStor, Amazon, and a host of other sites. Developed for the humanities, and compatible with PCs and Macintosh computers, Zotero can also capture web-pages and generate formatted bibliographies automatically.  In a hands-on workshop we’ll demonstrate how Zotero can save you time in your research and teaching.
