What are the research and citation management needs of undergraduate students, and how does Zotero fit in? In this 60-minute interactive session, we’ll share tips and strategies for teaching Zotero to novice researchers, based on the instructor’s experience teaching Zotero library instruction sessions at a small liberal arts college and a research university.

About the instructor

Brendan O’Connell is an Outreach Coordinator with Zotero. He is an academic librarian by training, with many years of experience in higher education and technology, most recently at Smith College and North Carolina State University in the United States. His work as a librarian has included teaching Zotero to hundreds of students, faculty, and fellow librarians in many different formats and settings.

Brendan’s work with Zotero will focus on a variety of outreach and engagement efforts, including teaching webinars that will train librarians to better teach Zotero to students and faculty at their home institutions, as well as creating tutorial materials for a general academic audience. He is passionate about open-source software and protecting user privacy, values long held in common between libraries and Zotero.
