In an effort to better equip university librarians and IT staff to implement, train, and support Zotero, we will be offering two-day workshops at locations across the US. Through these workshops, participants will acquire a solid understanding of Zotero’s capabilities and how those capabilities can best meet their users’ needs.
The pilot workshop will be held February 19-20, 2009 at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, just outside Washington DC. The cost to attend the workshop is $350 and, due to the hands-on nature of these workshops, enrollment is limited. The Zotero team will be accepting applications through December 19, 2008 and applications will be considered on the following criteria:
1. Your current or future role in representing Zotero on your campus
2. Your institution’s plans for, or interest in, adopting Zotero
3. Maximum representation of different campuses: we will most likely only accept one or two individuals from any single institution and are seeking representation from a range of schools.
Application details and forms are located here, and applicants will receive confirmation of their acceptance by January 9, 2009.
Applicants not accepted to the pilot workshop will be welcome to apply to the next one, planned for early summer 2009 at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia (workshops in 2010 are planned for the Midwest and West Coast). More information regarding this and later 2009 workshops will be released as available.
