Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators

ACRL announces the publication of Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators. Authored by Jason Puckett of Georgia State University, Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators is the first book-length treatment of this powerful research tool developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.

Written for end users, librarians and teachers, the book introduces Zotero and presents it in the context of bibliography managers and open source software. Puckett then provides detailed instructions on using the software in research and writing, along with a wealth of useful information including instructional best practices, examples, support tips and advanced techniques for those who teach and support Zotero.

“Puckett draws on his deep understanding of Zotero’s technology to provide clear, concise guidelines and tips for beginners and experts alike,” says Sean Takats, co-director of Zotero, assistant professor of History at George Mason University and director of research projects at the Center for History and New Media. “As a bonus, he convincingly argues why you — yes, you — need to be using research software and why Zotero is the best choice.”

A perfect guidebook to a robust open access research tool that allows the user to manage all aspects of bibliographic data, Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators is essential for librarians, classroom faculty and students alike.

Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators will be available at the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans and is available for purchase in print and as an ePub, Kindle, or PDF e-book through the ALA Online StoreAmazon.com; and by telephone order at (866) 746-7252 in the U.S. or (770) 442-8633 for international customers.
