Zotero Standalone Alpha

In the fairly short time since the initial notice, the alpha version of a browser-independent Zotero has now become available. A fully stable release is likely some time away yet, but the noticeable and rapid progress on the initiative is encouraging.

    I’m a Zotero newbie. Hopefully it will get easier the more I work with it.

      It does. Have you seen and downloaded the SBL Style? It’s still in development, but even so, it gets you pretty close.

        No, I haven’t found that. I’ve only had the program installed for a week or so but thought it would be handy as I work on my thesis. Thanks for the tip!

        Have there been any updates of the SBL style in the past year?

          I didn’t think so, but the latest update actually came through on December 1. This update at least reenabled use of the “ibid” notation for the SBL style. I don’t recall what they were, but the style had some other updates around the same time as “ibid” got dissabled. So, I hadn’t upgraded yet, but I certainly will now. . . . very nice timing since I’m planning to push “go” on the dissertation bibliography later this week. 🙂

      You’re quite welcome. I’ll be waiting to try it until the stable version comes out (dissertation bibliography hanging in the balance and all), but it’s nice to see that better interoperability—particularly with Google Chrome is close(r) at hand. 🙂
