Dan Chudnov :: Library Geeks 005 - Zotero

Originally posted by Dan Chudnov on October 3, 2006.

Dan Cohen, Josh Greenberg, and Dan Stillman of the Center for History and New Media at GMU joined me to discuss their work on Zotero, their about-to-be-released Firefox 2 based citation manager-cum-bibliographic everything keeper. "Z-Day", as they call the upcoming public release day, is scheduled for this Thursday, October 5, 2006.

There's a lot to be excited about in Zotero, as I wrote recently. Listen in and learn all about it straight from the source through the local podcast feed, iTunes, or straight to the mp3 file.

Show notes:

  • To use Zotero, you'll need Firefox 2.
  • Zotero uses the Citation Style Language, or CSL, by Bruce D'Arcus.
  • Zotero can recognize, parse, and collect bibliographic information found in COinS.
  • Support is planned in Zotero for unAPI.
