Great Reviews As Zotero Goes Back To School

School is back in session and the results are in. If you are not already running Zotero, it is a must-have app for this school year. This week, both readwriteweb and globeandmail.com offered strong recommendations for making Zotero part of every student’s and scholar’s research toolbox.

On Monday, globeandmail.com posted a list of the apps they love, and Zotero was right at the top of the list. Then, on Wednesday readwriteweb recomended Zotero as part of its list of 10 Great Web Apps for College Students. As your friends, students, or colleagues settle in for the semester, consider helping them simplify their research lives by making sure they know about Zotero.

More Than 100 Institutions Can’t Be Wrong

As the Zotero team diligently works on implementing a variety of exciting new features, we are proud to report that there are now over one hundred institutions recommending Zotero to their users. Some institutions, like MIT, have developed their own web tutorials on using Zotero, and others, like Rice University’s Fondren Library, are offering Zotero workshops for students and faculty. If we have missed your institution’s recommendation of Zotero or you would like help in developing a workshop or web tutorial for your users, please feel free to contact campus-reps[at}zotero.org. And if your institution does not yet recommend Zotero or offer Zotero instruction, please consider sending a note about how much you love Zotero to your favorite librarian or IT staff member.
