Learn how to use Zotero, an open source citation management program that allows you to collect and organize references and documents. Zotero allows you to create references manually, but also supports a powerful browser extension that can clip items directly from the web. Items are stored in your library, which you can organize, tag, and search. This session will go over the basics of using Zotero: adding references, attaching files, organizing your library, syncing to the web, and creating formatted citations.

Please bring your PC or Mac to the session. This session will focus on Zotero Standalone but should also be applicable to users who choose to use Zotero for Firefox instead. You may download and install Zotero in advance of the session.

Documenting the Impact of Your Scholarship

Wednesday, May 4, 11 am - 12:30 pm 

Location: Gumberg 408

Presenters:  David Nolfi, Health Sciences Librarian & Library Assessment Coordinator; and Allison Brungard, STEM Librarian

Co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence.

The workshop's goal is to help faculty members applying for promotion and tenure to make the case for excellence in scholarship by using tools such as citation analysis, journal metrics, and other methods. Newer faculty who are just starting to publish can also benefit by using these tools to develop effective publishing strategies. Following the presentation, participants will have hands-on opportunities to use the tools and begin documenting the impact of their own scholarship. The workshop will conclude with a faculty-led discussion about using scholarship data in the promotion and tenure process.

Registration is required for this workshop due to a limited number of seats.
