Have no fear, we will save you!

If you are scratching your head wondering what Zotero is, here’s a brief synopsis:

Zotero is an easy-to-use web tool that allows you to collect, organize, and cite your references.  Yes, you read that correctly.  It helps format the citations for your sources.  It even plays nice with MS Word to insert citations into your research paper as you are writing.

Here’s the best part:

Zotero is totally free!  It can be used as an extension in Firefox or downloaded as a standalone app on your computer.

Sound intriguing?

The Library is hosting an online Introduction to Zotero workshop to help you use this tool to organize your research.  Come and join us online on 10/28/15 at 1:00 pm.

If the online setting does not work for you, we will also have a face-to-face Introduction to Zotero workshop on 11/09/2015 at 1:00 pm in Library Classroom A.
