Zotero course online July 2011

I'm teaching a month-long continuing ed class on Zotero for Simmons College's School of Library and Information Science. This is an asynchronous class that starts July 1 and runs through the whole month of July. The class is for librarians and library staff who want to learn to use Zotero for their own research and teach and support it in their libraries.

You don't need any previous experience with Zotero to participate. We start with installation and setup, cover the basic save and cite features, group libraries and cloud storage, best practices for teaching and supporting Zotero in libraries, practical applications for Zotero in your library, and more.

I use my forthcoming (soon!) book about Zotero as the "textbook" for the class, so as an added bonus you'll basically get a free electronic copy of the book's content as part of your participation. (I don't think the official ebook edition will be available in time, so I'll probably be using preprint chapters. But all the words and pictures are the same.)

This is the second time I've taught this class; I think I got some good ideas from my experiences with the March run and I'm really pleased that Simmons' continuing education office has asked me to bring it back for a repeat engagement.

Register here. The class costs $250, $200 for Simmons GSLIS alumni.
