ACRL Superpower Your Browser links

This is the "handout" for my March 23 webcast "Superpower your Browser: Open Source Research Tools" for ACRL. I've included printable URLs.

My article about LibX and Zotero is available in the February 2010 issue of C&RL News and online at http://crln.acrl.org/content/71/2/70.full

"LibX and Zotero: Firefox extensions for librarians and library patrons" by Jacob Glenn. Zotero in particular has introduced many new features since this was written, but it's a good introduction to both programs. http://www-personal.umich.edu/~jkglenn/firefox/

  1. Hi Jason, Your presentation today was fabulous! I got all excited about setting us up with LibX but I can’t find a place to register (ie, to set up a login and password)! Can you point me in the right direction?

  2. Hi, Ann. So glad you enjoyed the session! You register at LibX just by going to the Edition Builder login page and putting in your email address and choosing password. They don’t seem to have a separate “register” interface. Confusing, I agree.

  3. Thanks Jason, that wasn’t intuitive but it worked great!
