Library Workshop: Learning to Use Zotero, a Citation Manager

Need help organizing your research? Tired of creating bibliographies by hand? Want to make gathering web references easier? Zotero, a free citation management service, can help you do all of this and more.

Citation management refers to the collecting and organizing of information used in your research, so that you can be sure to reference it properly in your work (and avoid plagiarism). Zotero can save you a lot of time by automatically collecting the bibliographic information for your sources and inserting references automatically in your written work.

If you’re interested in learning how to use Zotero, please RSVP to attend this workshop on Thursday, September 7 from 11 a.m.–noon in Paul V. Galvin Library. If you have a laptop, please bring it—the first part of the workshop will cover installing the software. If you can’t make this workshop, it will be offered again on Wednesday, October 4 from 1–2 p.m. and Tuesday, November 14 from 3–4 p.m. Please contact librarian Andrea Jakubas (ajakubas@iit.edu) with any questions.
