Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers, and Educators is the first book-length treatment of this powerful research tool developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University (VA). This book is written for Zotero end users, librarians and teachers. Part One introduces Zotero and presents it in the context of bibliography managers and open source software, Part Two explains in detail how to use the software in research and writing, and Part Three provides information for those who teach and support Zotero, with instructional best practices, examples, support tips and advanced techniques.

"Puckett draws on his deep understanding of Zotero's technology to provide clear, concise guidelines and tips for beginners and experts alike. As a bonus, he convincingly argues why you -- yes, you -- need to be using research software and why Zotero is the best choice." says Sean Takats, co-director of Zotero, Assistant Professor of History at George Mason University and Director of Research Projects at the Center for History and New Media.

A perfect guidebook to a robust open access research tool that allows the user to manage all aspects of bibliographic data, Zotero: A Guide for Librarians, Researchers, and Educators is essential for librarians and teaching faculty alike. Due to the clarity of explanation and the depth of application, its usefulness extends to undergraduate and graduate students as well.
