Firefox Extensions and Tools: Using iMacros and Zotero

Todd Quinn, Northern State University
Jennifer Borkenhagen, Concordia University - St. Paul


This session will focus on two Firefox extensions and tools. Quinn will highlight iMacros which takes advantage of the macro concept and tabbed browsing capabilities and which can be used as an alternative to federated search and for performing repetitive tasks. Borkenhagen will discuss Zotero which allows users to capture bibliographic information about books, journal articles, and web pages while doing your research. Zotero will also allow you to organize these resources into folders and add notes about each item. During this session, participants will have an opportunity to download/create these Firefox add-ons and look at the ways in which librarians and library patrons can use them.

Todd Quinn is Reference Services Coordinator at Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Jennifer Borkenhagen is the Circulation Supervisor and Reference & Instruction Librarian at Concordia University - St. Paul, Minnesota.
