Digital Bibliographies: Zotero, Mendeley, and others.
Thursday, February 7, 2013
1:00-2:30pm @ History Lab (SOS 150)
Join Keith Pluymers and Justin Haar for a discussion of some of the most popular digital tools for collecting, organizing, and compiling citations. We will demonstrate the basics of Zotero, Mendelay, Endnote, and others, discuss their potential usefulness for historians, both faculty and graduate students, and field questions about using these tools in your work.
Zotero is 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. For more information and to download the Zotero add-on for Firefox, go to www.zotero.org.
Mendeley is a free PDF manager with plug-in capability with Microsoft Word and Open Office. It allows you to organize and import PDFs from your computer, Endnote, or Zotero, backs them up remotely and syncs between computers, and allows secure sharing of your PDFs, notes, and annotations with colleagues.
