Hello, Daily Deacdom! I am back from a week of PTO, and Winston-Salem decided to turn up the heat in my absence.

As I try to catch up from what I missed last week, a post from the ZSR Library caught my eye. In addition to their wonderful classes on misinformation and disinformation, they have a series of videos on topics of interest:

Research instruction tutorials – how to work with databases and other sources

Zotero, which is an online research management and citation tool.

I can’t say enough about the help that Zotero can offer your students in terms of citations and bibliographies. It is worth its weight in gold. If you have a ’24 – or a student of any year who has not used Zotero before – now is a great time to watch these videos and play around with Zotero and take a gander at the research videos. Having some baseline knowledge now is likely better than trying to learn it at the same time you need to write papers or do research once the fall semester begins.
