Andy Naselli explains how and why to use the free program Zotero to organize and track your books.
This is manna from heaven for an OCD pastor like myself.
I can definitely use this!
Is there a way to migrate my firefox scrapbook into Zotero?
Very nice. Thanks for linking, brother. I think we may be able to use this for our seminary in El Salvador.
I have used Zotero to manage my bookmarks and bibliography for papers, but it never occurred to me to use it to manage my (meager but growing) library.
I’m curious how you would annotate or categorize attachments or excerpts from books. I have tons of those and while the standardized citation format for books makes them easy to add to Zotero, I’m not sure about attachments/papers/excerpts, etc.
Great looking software. I think this will be of help.
Guess I’m just old fashioned. I actually catalog my library according to Dewey and put labels on each book spine on the shelf and keep a record on my computer. Simple enough. It’s worked for years in actual libraries! :)
