Seeking New Orleans Scholars for Collaborative Bibliographies
The _New Orleans Studies Zotero Commons Project_ is developing collaborative bibliographies on aspects of New Orleans through the open source bibliographic database manager, Zotero 2.0 (http://www.zotero.org) and seek participants for this endeavor. We hope to create resources useful for research and teaching among an online community of scholars. Current topics under development include: race, urbanization, tourism, music, hurricanes, and labor.
We invite interested persons to contact Connie Moon Sehat (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Leslie Harris (email@example.com) by January 11, 2010. Please include a brief biography and description of your interests for the bibliographic project. Please also include your experience with Zotero 2.0 or web 2.0 technologies (if any) overall.
These collaborative bibliographies are part of the "New Orleans Studies Zotero Commons Project", a larger attempt to create a nonprofit online resource of materials about the history, people, and culture of New Orleans. As a developing pilot of the future "Zotero Commons" (http://www.zotero.org Zotero and http://www.archive.org Internet Archive partnership), we aim to be collaborative and dynamic.
