Reminder: Zotero Workshop

Want to learn how to save your research time? How to better integrate citations seamlessly into your research process? Then come to the Library workshop on Zotero [Zoh-TAIR-oh], a fun, free, easy-to-use Firefox extension that helps you collect, manage and cite your research sources.

The workshop will be at 1 p.m., Wednesday, April 6, in Library 244.

Participants will create Zotero accounts, add information to a database, and learn how to organize material and create bibliographies, reports and references. The session will also cover a few advanced features, like creating timelines and groups and linking with HuskyFetch.

Bring your laptop, if you wish, or use one of our computers, and we’ll help get you started.

The Library now offers weekly workshops all semester on different resources that will give you an academic edge or save time. Workshops take place alternate Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 1 p.m., in Library 244. Each workshop is offered twice to accommodate class schedules.

Library Hosts “Wilson Web” Workshop

The library offers weekly workshops all semester on resources that lend an academic edge and save time. Workshops take place at 1 p.m. on alternate Tuesdays and Wednesdays in Library 244. Each workshop is offered twice to accommodate class schedules.

The third workshop, at 1 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 8, repeated Wednesday, Feb. 16, will address important changes to the H. W. Wilson databases.

Long considered the breadbasket of the General Education curriculum, these databases are migrating from FirstSearch to the WilsonWeb platform.

Wilson Web is a new, easy-to-use way of searching across the library’s Wilson databases that cover business, education, humanities, biological and agricultural sciences, and more using a single search. Searches link you to full-text publications and allow refinements, including “peer reviewed only.” The workshop will demonstrate this new user interface with enhancements, including text-to-speech.

This spring’s workshops will focus on resume building, material science resources, managing citations and many more. The library welcomes feedback and ideas for future workshops. Email them at library@mtu.edu.
