Zotero is an open-source citation manager that allows you to save information while searching and browsing the Web. With a single click, Zotero saves citations (as well as screen shots and documents) and enables you to create customized bibliographies in multiple citation styles, including MLA, Chicago, and APA.

This workshop will be structured in three parts. You are welcome to attend whichever parts will be useful to you.
