This session will introduce you to Zotero (https://www.zotero.org/), a free tool to manage bibliographies and bibliographic databases.

Managing your research with Zotero Thu 2 Feb 2023   11:00 [Places]

Using a reference manager is one of the best ways to look after crucial research literature, whether planning for a literature review or simply keeping track of developments in a particular discipline. This session will introduce Zotero.

Using live demonstrations, discussions, and troubleshooting common referencing issues, the session will give an in-depth look at how Zotero (and tools like it) can help maximise a research project workflow while also ensuring that critical resources and information are not lost at any point in the research process.

Please note: This session will be offered, either online or in person, in Michaelmas, Lent and Easter terms.

Zotero for Graduates Unscheduled Not bookable

The aim of the workshop is to give an overview of how graduate students can make effective use of Zotero software for referencing and managing information. It will especially suit graduate students from the School of Arts and Humanities, and Humanities and Social Sciences. There will be plenty of time at the end for questions about the use of Zotero in your field of research.

It would be extremely valuable for you to download and familiarize yourself with Zotero in advance of the session. Zotero is free, and works with Chrome, Firefox and Safari.

To do this, please go to Zotero. Download Zotero itself and install the browser connector. You may also find it useful to create an account with Zotero; the benefits of doing so will be outlined during the session.

If you have any difficulty with downloading Zotero in advance, please feel free to contact the course organiser, Helen Murphy, at hem37@cam.ac.uk.

Referencing is a face of academic life. Students and researchers need to explore the work of others in order to build upon it and proper referencing helps to showcase the range and breadth of research undertaken. The ideas of others also need to be credited appropriately in order to avoid accusations of plagiarism. But - it's also a fact of academic life that referencing can be boring and complicated. This session aims to change all that!

In this session we will explore online reference management tools and how they can save you time and effort when compiling your bibliography. Using the tool Zotero as an example we will show you how to import references from a range of sources, create easy in text citations and produce a bibliography at the click of a button.

Need to find scientific litertaure and resources for your Part II dissertation or project? We've got you covered.

In this session, we will introduce you to breaking down your research question, developing your keywords or vocabulary for what you want to search for, before putting it all together using tried and tested techniques to get the best results quickly. We'll show you where to find relevant and reliable resources, how to navigate pesky paywalls and even how to hack Google...legally of course!

If you can't make our live sessions, everything we talk about (and a little bit more) is covered in our self-guided online course.

Want something a bit more advanced? Check out our Going further with your literature searching for your Biological Sciences dissertation or project workshop which will show more detailed searching, demonstrate how the reference manager Zotero can help you at Part II, as well as leaving lots of time for questions and troubleshooting.
