2013 IBR Research Group Sessions

While this year’s SBL program is still in preparation, the contents of the IBR research group sessions are now available via the individual research group links on the call for papers page.

Update: After copying this link yesterday, the call for papers page URL was apparently updated. Such is the Internet; the link above has now been corrected to reflect the current page location (HT: Joseph Kelly, Kirk Lowery).

I’ve just now noticed, but a stable release of Zotero 4 became available earlier this week. This release includes a substantial number of updates over previous versions. For highlights, see here, or peruse the whole change log.

Small Caps in Zotero

The SBL Handbook of Style, 1st ed., suggests several abbreviations that involve small capital letters (e.g., §8.2). Zotero’s rich text markup will support the use of small capitals in a citation’s prefix or suffix fields. Zotero will turn text into small capitals if the text is enclosed by:

<span style=”font-variant:small-caps;”> and </span>

Or, apparently also the simpler:

<sc> and </sc>

In the SBL Handbook of Style, 2nd ed., the use of small caps looks to be restricted to Sumerian logograms (§5.5).

For more information on this Zotero feature, see this forum discussion and the general list of rich text formatting options available for Zotero citations.
