About this page...

5/2/2013 - lost your Zotero icon in Firefox? Look here 

8/30/13: Worried about how Zotero will interact with the upcoming change from Griffin/WSU WorldCat to Search It?  look here...

11/20/2013 - What does this "Full-text Content Syncing" mean? You may have seen this on a pop-up when you opened Zotero. Its a good thing - here's more info.

2/24/2014: I started a YouTube Playlist for screencasts I create about using Zotero. Don't expect polish... 

*****   So, what's Zotero?

Zotero is a free, open source alternative to reference manager systems such as EndNote and RefWorks. Zotero allows you to easily save webpages and articles found in library subscription databases such as Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, JSTOR, and PubMed, as well as bibliographic details, PDFs or other files, comments/notes, and indexing terms. Saved PDFs are searchable. When you are ready to write, you can use Zotero to integrate your references into your work in many citation styles using MS Word or OpenOffice. References can be backed up and shared between computers and even with other people over the Web. Zotero works with the Firefox, Chrome, and Safari browsers  (the last two via a standalone program); if you are using another browser (i.e. IE, your iPad, or an Android tablet browser) items can be added to your online library via a bookmarklet. Third-party apps are available to use Zotero on tablets and smartphones.

Update 11/28/2012 - Sometime in the future Zotero users will be able to edit citation styles themselves (this will make fixing citations and working with variant styles much easier). The process is being developed by Columbia University and Zotero frenemy Mendelay - find out more here and here, or test the beta version here (note: installing it will be different...)

(If you want to make your own [WSU] WorldCat searchbox or widget to place on a webpage, Facebook profile, etc., look here. This one shows items from a WSU WorldCat keyword search I created (you can erase the Zotero in the search box and type in your own search), but you can also create list widgets or undetermined keyword search widgets.)

New Resources/Services

  • No More Griffin/WSU WorldCat - Now its Search It
    For more information, including instructions for how to get updated Search it links for books, articles, etc.: Note: All Griffin/WSU WorldCat links on this page are now dead; I will update as soon as I can!
  • The Proxy Bookmarklet
    Proxy Bookmarklet
    Have you ever found something on the Web that you knew was available through the Libraries, but it was too much of a pain to log into the Libraries site and find it? Now we have a bookmarklet that you can add to your browser button bar so that you can log in via the Libraries and get immediate access (most of the time…) find out more about our new proxy bookmarklet. And it works with tablets too...
  • BrowZine ("brow-zeen")
    Do you have an iPad or Android tablet ((Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy, or Kindle Fire HD running Ice Cream Sandwich)? You might be interested in the Libraries new tablet browsing/discovery service, BrowZine. It makes it easy to scan tables of content, and open articles in your preferred PDF reader (i.e. GoodReader, iAnnotate, or PDFExpert) for reading and mark-up. Articles and/or article information can also be automatically sent to other places (including DropBox) You can also create a bookshelf of journals you want to save for easy access, and save individual articles.

BrowZine (Tablet journal browsing & more ; Zotero compatible)
