Need Help Downloading Zotero?

First of all, what is Zotero, and why might you want to use it? If you’ve ever worried about plagiarism after losing track of where the text you cut-and-pasted into your notes came from or whose idea you were paraphrasing where, a research tool like Zotero can help. It keeps all of your citations in one location, and it can format those citations in hundreds of styles (including in-text citations and your reference list). How much does this amazing program cost? Good news, Zotero is free and open source. Interested? Ellis Library offers workshops on using Zotero, and you can find lots of information in our handy guide.

To get Zotero, you can download the latest version from their website, or you can stop by the Ellis Library Reference Desk for one-on-one assistance downloading Zotero to your laptop. Technical help getting Zotero installed on your laptop is available during these hours:

Monday 9 am – 7 pm
Tuesday 9 am – 7 pm
Wednesday 9 am – 7 pm
Thursday 9 am – 7 pm
Friday 9 am – 5 pm
Saturday 10 am – 4 pm
Sunday noon – 7 pm

If you are planning on attending the Zotero session of LibWIS on September 15th, you must have it installed on your laptop before the session begins at 3:15 pm. Stop by the reference desk at one of the times above, or help will be available in the classroom from 3:00-3:15 pm.

Mizzou’s One Read

Infamy: The Shocking Story of the Japanese American Internment in World War II

Richard Reeves

22320449

Less than three months after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and inflamed the nation, President Roosevelt signed an executive order declaring parts of four western states to be a war zone operating under military rule. The U.S. Army immediately began rounding up thousands of Japanese-Americans, sometimes giving them less than 24 hours to vacate their houses and farms. For the rest of the war, these victims of war hysteria were imprisoned in primitive camps.

Why a One Read?

For students, faculty, and staff, it is important to be exposed to and aware of aspects of the world beyond their own daily experiences. To facilitate this understanding, and also to strengthen our campus community, Mizzou Law started a One Read program in 2015. This year, MU Libraries is thrilled to join the program and invite all students, staff, and faculty to read a particular book relating to diversity, inclusion, and current issues of social justice.

We believe that a One Read program will strengthen our Mizzou community by providing a focus for yearlong conversations and events across campus. Over the past several years, our attention has been drawn by events around the U.S. to issues of race and the experience of “otherness.” These issues reflect the challenges of seeing the world from another’s perspective – an imperative skill at any University, and as a member of society.
