Integrating Collaborative Bibliography and Research
Ryan Shaw, Patrick Golden and Michael Buckland
We report on the design and implementation of an innovative shared work-environment "Editors' Notes," especially the use of an open-source bibliographical reference management platform (Zotero) in conjunction with a continuously updated corpus of the working notes of three leading documentary editing projects and the curatorial notes of a library special collection. The benefits, constraints, and affordances of using Zotero in a one-way relationship with the text corpus are described and additional possibilities are noted.
