UVA Library Data Services/StatLab Workshop: Using Zotero for Research

For many of us, the current pandemic has changed not only where we work but also how we work, teach, and do research. With this comes particular challenges as we move to Zoom meetings and asynchronous ways of working. One tool that can help now and once we return to our regularly scheduled routines is a bibliographic manager. Zotero is a free, open source bibliographic manager that allows you to easily collect, organize, cite, and share research. It’s an easy tool to set up and integrate into your research practice while also offering a number of add-ons and customization. You can create a private or public “library” of your saved literature, create group libraries among colleagues and working groups, develop an organizational model for finding saved literature easily, and keep notes, files, and documentation at hand with item records. And, best of all, Zotero offers over 9000 citation formats so you can automatically have Zotero do the bulk of the heavy lifting using everything from APA to a customized journal citation format.
Please be sure to install Zotero before the workshop. We’ve provided a brief set of slides to walk you through the installation.
