Zotero available for Chrome and Safari users | Bright Ideas - 0 views

  •  
    I like Zotero which is a free online bibliographical management tool.  haven't used it through Chrome yet but have used it in Firefox and got the add on for Word. It automatically cited information for you which was a real time saver for me when completing my Advanced Diploma studies. Read the article in Bright Ideas for more information. 
  •  
    I too have use Zotero for my uni studies and found it quite clever. Zotero works better when installed using Firefox (which I personally don't use). So, if you are looking for a program to keep your bibliography on track take a look at this program.

Over 5000 historical Novels Listed by Time and Place - 1 views

  •  
    This is a really handy website which I use both personally and professionally. I am really keen on the idea of using fiction to help teach history. I think reading historical fiction helps bring history 'alive' and stimulates an interest in finding out more. Even if the book is not 100% correct it doesn't matter as discovering this is part of the learning process and encourages critical thinking.
