Jason Puckett With great power comes great bibliography.

Zotero

Zotero 2nd edition coverZotero: A guide for librarians, teachers and researchers is  available from ACRL Publications. Buy it at the ALA Store or Amazon.

"In this second edition of Zotero: a guide for librarians, researchers, and educators, Jason has significantly updated and improved on his 2011 edition, drawing on his rich experience supporting, teaching, and 'evangelizing' Zotero…[a] successful teacher will find this guide to understanding not just Zotero but also its users indispensable.”

— from the Foreword by Sebastian Karcher, Associate Director of the Qualitative Data Repository at Syracuse University, leading specialist on the Zotero reference management software and the Citation Style Language

Praise for the first edition:

"Puckett draws on his deep understanding of Zotero's technology to provide clear, concise guidelines and tips for beginners and experts alike. As a bonus, he convincingly argues why you -- yes, you -- need to be using research software and why Zotero is the best choice." -- Sean Takats, co-director of Zotero and and Director of Research Projects at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media

"Jason does an awesome job of explaining how to perform both basic and advanced functions using Zotero. His book is geared not only to librarians, but to anyone doing research, to anyone who might benefit from a research assistant in their browser. ... This handy guide is a must have for anyone who does research or writes for publication." -- Nicole Engard, author of Practical Open Source Software for Libraries

If you're considering an ebook edition, I recommend buying it from the ALA Store: you'll get DRM-free PDF, ePub, and Kindle/Mobi files that will work on just about any device out there. (As is unfortunately always the case, the Kindle edition sold by Amazon is encumbered with Amazon's DRM.)

The book's bibliography is available as a Zotero shared library.

These two PDF handouts summarize most of what I cover in a typical Zotero workshop.

  1. Jason, I’m looking forward to the book immensely. Particularly the teaching with Zotero section.

  2. Thank you, Stacey. I’m pretty pleased with the teaching chapter, so I hope you’ll find it useful when the book comes out.

  3. Hi Jason,

    I’m very interested in reading your book. Can’t wait. Furthermore it is wonderful to have a pre-look on your bibliography – many interesting papers in it I didn’t know before. Maybe you already recognized it: Me and others compiling a bibliography with works on reference management (software) using Mendeley – see http://www.mendeley.com/groups/498071/reference-management/papers/. Join us if you like!

  4. Jason, I bought two copies because I knew I would need to share it. Thank you for doing this. This will surely help to quicken the pace of teachers adopting Zotero for instructional use.
