Connie Reik is a Government Publications Coordinator and Research Librarian for History at Tisch Library at Tufts University. She also teaches how to perform research. She teaches these skills to college students and, more recently, to genealogists. Along the way, Connie has become an expert and instructor in the use of Zotero, a free citation manager and note taker.
Connie now gives talks and workshops on Zotero at genealogy conferences. I knew that her former students have been enthusiastic about Connie's seminars at previous conferences. As one student told me, "Where has this been all my life?" I found Connie at another genealogy conference and asked if she would share some of her expertise with newsletter readers. Although it is impossible to capture a one- or two-hour hands-on seminar in a short audio podcast, Connie did manage to provide an overview and was able to tell why Zotero is such a great tool for genealogists.
Zotero works on Windows and Macintosh alike. It is an add-on to your web browser and is available at any time you are on the Internet. It is available free of charge. For more information about Zotero, look at http://www.zotero.org.
