Zotero: Should I Take The Plunge?
I’m thinking hard about diving into Zotero. This could mean big changes for me. First, I’m a fan of Internet Explorer. Second, when I do things like this, I go full in: I’m committed. Third, I have no prior experience with EndNote or related citation software. So here are some questions for my predecessors in this endeavor:
1. What are my alternatives?
2. What problems have you encountered with Zotero?
3. What are the odds Zotero will be obsolete in a few years? I mean, this is my life. I can’t be changing programs every 3 years. It’s just too disruptive.
4. When you need help, can you get it? Is there a solid support team for Zotero users? I guess this is related to #2 above.
5. Will I be okay with Firefox?
6. Can I save my “Zotero Files” on my flash drive? This isn’t all stored in Firefox, right?
7. Anything I’m forgetting?
Thanks in advance for your help. – TL
