Open level Zotero workshop

Sign up

Instructor: Solveig Isis Sørbø

Do you write articles that cite other papers? Are you tired of struggling with citations and reference lists or with tools that are supposed to help you with these? Then this workshop is for you.

A free open source reference management tool Zotero helps you build your own reference library, organize it, share it, collaborate with other researchers and easily cite as you write using different citation styles as required by the journals. Master Zotero and you will free a lot of mind space and valuable time for the more analytical and creative bits of your research process.

In this hands-on course you will learn to:

  • Build your own reference library by downloading or entering bibliographic information about your sources.
  • Add citations and bibliographies in Word or OpenOffice, and convert them to different styles
  • Create a group library and collaborate with your peers
  • Tips and tricks

Depending on the group level we might also move on to more advanced functions.

Please bring a laptop with you to the course, and make sure either Word, LibreOffice, OpenOffice or NeoOffice is installed. It is recommended to create a Zotero account and install Zotero for Firefox, prior to the course.

To create a Zotero-user, visit: https://www.zotero.org/user/register/

Zotero for Firefox: https://www.zotero.org/download/

After installing the software, go to: Preferences >Sync and enter your username and password. Now you are good to go! Play with the functions to prep for the workshop :)
