Overleaf, GitHub, Zotero: Syncing Your Bibliography In-Person
When you're using Overleaf to write LaTeX documents, GitHub is one option you can use to sync your files with your computer. When you use the reference management tool Zotero for managing your references and PDFs, several Zotero features can help you make this connection even better. In this workshop, we will discuss how to make these three systems talk to one another in order to:
- easily upload new references into your Overleaf document
- have a backup copy of your Overleaf project (just in case!)
- explore GitHub for version control and document management
This hands-on workshop requires that you:
- Create a GitHub account (unless you already have one) and install GitHub Desktop.
- Create a Zotero account (unless you already have one) and download/install Zotero.
- Create an account on Overleaf (unless you already have one) with your Yale email.
We will download and install the Better BibTeX plugin for Zotero during the workshop, and we will do most of our LaTeX work in a test Overleaf document.
Any student who participates in at least 3 library workshops during the Spring 2023 semester will be eligible for a prize. Learn more about the Workshop Incentive Program.
