and Tools: Using iMacros and Zotero
Todd Quinn, Reference Services Coordinator,
Northern State University, and Jennifer Borkenhagen, Circulation
Supervisor/Reference & Instruction
Librarian, Concordia Univ-St Paul
This session will focus on two Firefox extensions and tools.
Quinn will highlight iMacros which takes advantage of the macro concept
and tabbed browsing capabilities and which can be used as an alternative
to federated search and for performing repetitive tasks. Borkenhagen
will discuss Zotero which allows users to capture bibliographic information
about books, journal articles, and web pages while doing your research.
Zotero will also allow you to organize these resources into folders
and add notes about each item. During this session, participants will
have an opportunity to download/create these Firefox add-ons and look
at the ways in which librarians and library patrons can use them.
