Reference resource management (RRM) is an essential subject for researchers. It has to deal with how we deal with information storage and organization for review and integration into our works. Historically, this has largely been a manual process: keeping physical copies of works in physical locations, recording reference information by hand. This approach has also largely translated is a rather direct way into digital management - with electronic folders replacing paper ones and so on.
Reference resource management software like Zotero, which I highlight in this presentation, provides a new, much more tightly integrated approach to reference materials. It offers a single platform for collecting, formatting, organizing, annotating, and integrating within one system as opposed to many disparate services. With a single system and a well-defined workflow, researchers can more quickly and effectively generate new works. This presentation reviews the features of Zotero (which are largely shared with other RRM software) and highlights a standard workflow approach for inputting, processing, and exporting information in the software.
