On-Demand Webinar: Zotero: Teaching and Supporting in Libraries

Description: Zotero is a free, open source program for saving and sharing citations and creating bibliographies. It’s easy enough for undergrads to learn quickly, but powerful enough for faculty research needs. In this session, learn how to use Zotero and discuss best practices for supporting and teaching it in libraries.

Learning Outcomes: 

Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:

1. Install and save citations and create bibliographies with Zotero;
2. Use Zotero to create shared libraries of references for collaborative work; and
3. Discuss supporting and teaching Zotero in the library environment.

Who Should Attend: Primarily academic librarians, since that's the audience most likely to be advising on creating bibliographies.


Jason Puckett is Online Learning Librarian and Associate Professor at Georgia State University Library in Atlanta, Georgia. Puckett has an MLIS from Florida State University and is the author of the ACRL books Modern Pathfinders: Creating Better Research Guides and Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers & Educators.
