Collaborative research with Zotero

Zotero, an open source and freely available reference manager, is popular for keeping track of sources and creating reference lists. But what about group projects or research collaborations?

Following a brief refresher on setting up and using Zotero, this Askalib workshop walks through its collaboration features and offers some tips for working with others when building shared collections or reading lists. Topics include:

  • Creating group collections

  • Adding contributors to private collections

  • Organizing and annotating sources using notes and tags

There will be an opportunity for students, faculty and other Zotero users, to share and discuss their own experiences using Zotero for group projects and collaborations.

Josh Rose, Science librarian, will offer some tips for setting up Zotero for collaborative research. 

Hope you can make it!
