Placing the IR Within the User's Workflow: Connecting Hydra-based Repositories with Zotero
MetadataShow full item record
How can we bring the institutional repository (IR) into the online workflow of faculty users? This session explores a (2014-16) Mellon-funded research project partnership between Zotero and the Penn State University Libraries. The project's goal is to connect Penn State's Hydra-based IR, ScholarSphere, with the Zotero client, allowing users to claim and deposit publications in ScholarSphere from within the Zotero interface. The session will detail the software development goals, plans for follow-up ethnographic research assessing the impact of the software. Implications and opportunities for other institutions with Hydra-based IRs interested in exploring a Zotero connections will also be shared.
