Are you working on a large research project like a thesis or dissertation? Or need to keep several different research projects organized but separated? If so, Zotero might be the tool for you! Zotero is a free citation management tool that helps you stay organized, quickly format citations, and generate bibliographies for your research. One of Zotero's many strengths are its various organization tools and features, which allows users to keep citations, .pdfs, notes for their research organized and all in one handy location.
In this workshop, we'll show you how to use Zotero’s nifty organization features to sort and store your research effectively. We will go over Zotero’s note-taking feature as well as tags, sorting, and related references. We will also overview how to make collections and sub-collections with added suggestions for good ways to use collections to organize various projects. We will also review adding and renaming full-text .pdfs to your citations. Additionally, this workshop will show how you can export your research into other useful formats and how to clean up your Zotero library to eliminate duplicates and to find unfiled items.
Note: Attendees of this workshop should have a basic working knowledge of Zotero. If you haven't used Zotero before, we recommend that you attend one of our Introduction to Zotero workshops or schedule an appointment with our Zotero team.
