I’m using Zotero, and will be watching the ‘how to’ materials as many times as it takes so I understand how to fully exploit the capabilities. Louise recommend RefWorks, and I have visited the site, but was very frustrated by how the site is structured. There is no easy video to view, each how-to topic is a pdf — seriously, a PDF? And not just one… oh no, one for every topic area. Pretty ghetto – does not present itself as a hi-tech tool .
I’ve already collected a stunning amount of ‘leads’ and have created sub-directories to organize the various tendrils I’m exploring. I’ve started making notes within Zotero about the significant information each addition contains.
! If anyone if actually reading this a big tip I’d like to pass on is … pay attention to the studies and authors that articles you find mention. They can lead you to the original sources that you will eventually need/want and also might give you the vocabulary that might make additional searches more fruitful.
