Advanced Zotero Workshop at Harvard Kennedy School

Registration is now open for a unique, one-day Advanced Zotero Workshop at the Harvard Kennedy School on November 8, 2013.

The workshop is aimed at scholars who have been using Zotero for a while and would like to get even more out of the software, receive specific advice on any issues they encounter, and get all of their questions answered. Registration will remain limited to eight participants, who will benefit from a workshop targeted to their needs and interest.

The cost to attend the workshops is $250. Sign up while there is still space!

The workshops will be conducted by Sebastian Karcher, one of Zotero’s most active community developers, who has a wealth of experience using, supporting, and developing Zotero. Contact him at karcher [at] u.northwestern.edu with any questions about the workshop, or if you would like to host an advanced user or Zotero trainer workshop at your own institution.

Summer Zotero Workshops

Sign up now for Zotero Trainer Workshops this summer:


  • June 13-14: Harvard Kennedy School, Cambridge, MA
  • June 20-21: AWHONN Offices, Washington DC
  • July 11-12: Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR
  • July 25-26: University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN

During these intensive (and fun!) two day events, participants acquire an in-depth understanding of Zotero’s capabilities, how to extend those capabilities, and how Zotero can best meet their users’ needs. Participants also learn and share best-practices for teaching and supporting Zotero at their institution and approaches for developing institution-specific documentation.

The workshops are targeted at librarians and anyone else who supports or wants to support Zotero at their institution or department. While basic familiarity with Zotero is recommended, there are no technical prerequisites for participating.

The cost to attend the workshops is $350. Due to the hands-on nature of the events, enrollment is limited. Sign up while there is still space!

The workshops will be conducted by Sebastian Karcher, one of Zotero’s most active community developers, who has a wealth of experience using, supporting, and developing Zotero. Contact him with any questions about the workshop at karcher [at] u.northwestern.edu
