GPLL243 - Using Zotero for Grads

In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to use Zotero, a desktop and web-based tool that you can use to organize the references you find in library catalogues and databases, insert citations in your papers, and prepare bibliographies or reference lists quickly and effectively, in a wide variety of citation styles (e.g. APA, MLA, Chicago, et cetera). We will look at how to integrate Zotero with Microsoft Word, LibreOffice, and Google Docs. We will also cover how to share folders and citations (e.g., for collaborative projects or to disseminate reading lists). No experience with Zotero is necessary.

Please ensure that you set up Zotero in advance of the workshop. You can find instructions on how to set up Zotero on the Library website:

Very useful tool! Understanding the basics of Zotero would definitely make creating bibliographies and adding citations easier.

Every graduate student needs to know how to use a reference manager. Zotero is free and promoted by Concordia. The information provided in this workshop was very useful to know how to use this tool.
