Inside Higher Ed Gives Zotero Two Thumbs Up

Scott McLemee has posted a very thorough review of Zotero on Inside Higher Education. The article does an excellent job explaining Zotero “for the absolute newbie” and has already sparked some thoughtful comments and discussion from faculty and staff in the higher education community. Give it a read and join in the conversation.

For further Zotero reading, you might take a look at a Q and A about Zotero the Institute for Museum and Library Services recently posted to their website. If you would rather listen, you might be more interested in a conversation about Zotero from the Talking with Talis podcast series. Still hungry for more Zotero news and reviews? You can always take a look at what people are saying about Zotero in our documentation section.
