Zotero book now available

I'm pleased and proud to announce that my book is now officially available from ACRL Publications! You can buy it on Amazon or from the ALA Store, in print or ebook editions. It will be available at the bookstore at ALA Annual in New Orleans this week.

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

Here's the ACRL press release:

ACRL announces the publication of  Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators. Authored by Jason Puckett of Georgia State University. Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators is the first book-length treatment of this powerful research tool developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.

Written for end users, librarians and teachers, the book introduces Zotero and presents it in the context of bibliography managers and open source software. Puckett then provides detailed instructions on using the software in research and writing, along with a wealth of useful information including instructional best practices, examples, support tips and advanced techniques for those who teach and support Zotero.

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

A perfect guidebook to a robust open access research tool that allows the user to manage all aspects of bibliographic data, Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators is essential for librarians, classroom faculty and students alike.

Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers and Educators will be available at the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans and is available for purchase in print and as an ePub, Kindle or PDF e-book through the ALA Online Store; in print and for Kindle through Amazon.com; and by telephone order at (866) 746-7252 in the U.S. or (770) 442-8633 for international customers.
