Zotero Whitepaper

Ellyssa points to a great whitepaper on one of my favourite 2.0 type services. I have spoken about my opinion that Zotero, the scrapbooking or citation management tool, should be taught in every higher ed information literacy class. If everyone used something like this they’d have proof of their research path and easy access to their electronic footnotes etc.
To learn more about Zotero, visit their website or read the new whitepaper, 7 Things You Need to Know About Zotero.
“Zotero (http://www.zotero.org/) is a Firefox plug-in which allows users to capture and record bibliographic information about Web pages, images, and online journal articles, and export them as both a formatted bibliography or a text file suitable for EndNote import. Unlike other bibliographic tools, Zotero can extract key metadata from Web pages and insert them into citations. Zotero has also been developing plug-ins for additional applications such as Microsoft Word and OpenOffice.”
As Martha Stewart says, “It’s a good thing.”
