Building Research Confidence in the Humanities: Zotero for Humanities Research Materials
About the presentation:
Zotero is a free and easy to learn tool that helps collect, organize, cite, and share information. We will also consider it as a tool for humanities research material management – primarily journal articles, archival collections/materials, books/eBooks, videos, webpages, and all of the associated metadata. Participants will be given a brief overview of Zotero's functionality, learn about methods and strategies for organizing metadata in Zotero, and explore ways to extend Zotero's capabilities through plug-ins.
About the speaker:
Melissa Gomis, University Libraries Associate Professor of Practice and Teaching & Learning Librarian
The target audience for this series is graduate students in the humanities who are starting out in advanced research or who want to level up their research skills at any time in their graduate program. Examples, tools, and points of reference will speak to research in the humanities and focus on research at the graduate level and beyond. While we want participants to be aware of this target audience to help set expectations, all UNL students, faculty, and staff are welcome.
About the series:
The UNL Libraries is excited to launch the workshop series "Building Research Confidence in the Humanities." Covering topics ranging from finding and organizing primary materials, locating and managing scholarly sources, and analyzing resources, to making decisions about presentation and publication, this nine-session series will introduce humanities researchers to a range of tools, resources, and techniques for growing their research practice.
