Zotero Workshop

This October the DC History Grad group is hosting an informal hands-on workshop about using Zotero as a research tool. Grad students from George Mason University will lead the group in a discussion about source management, walk through installation of Zotero, and discuss a number of useful features. [Please bring your laptops!]

Zotero can help you stay organized and save time when it comes to writing your dissertation (or any major research project).   Come find out how to maximize your research!

We hope to see you all there!
