Follow Libraries and Collections with Feeds

Anyone with a feed reader can now follow public Zotero libraries simply by clicking the feed icon at the right-hand side of the browser address bar. Feeds are generated at the library and collection level, and for group libraries as well as individual libraries.

This feature provides a great way for people both inside and outside the Zotero community to keep track of the latest and greatest additions to libraries and collections, and it will work with any browser and feed reader.

Help Zotero by Donating to the Center For History and New Media

Zotero users may not realize it, but the project is spearheaded by George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media (CHNM). For years, Zotero users have asked how they can help out, and many have contributed to the project by writing code, translating its interface, or promoting the software on their campuses and in their workplaces. Others have asked if they could make monetary contributions to support this free and open source effort.

Donate to CHNM in June and your contribution will be matched twice over. Thanks to a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Center for History and New Media has the rare opportunity to build a $3 million endowment to support infrastructure expenses and ongoing development across its many projects. We’re delighted to announce that now your contribution to the Center for History and New Media will be matched for a limited time. If you give within the month of June your donation will be stretched even further since an anonymous donor has agreed to double the National Endowment for the Humanities matching funds. Please consider making your tax-deductible contribution right now by using our easy online donation form.

Thanks in advance for your support of Zotero and CHNM!
