Sharing recent updates and work-in-progress
I’ve created a Zotero translator for the Libraries Tasmania catalogue. Using it, you can save metadata and digital resources to your own research database with a single click. Libraries Tasmania actually has three catalogues rolled into one – the main library catalogue, the Archives catalogue, and the Names Index. The translator works across all three. Features include:
The translator is now included in the main Zotero repository so should install and update itself automatically. If the Zotero browser extension doesn’t seem to be detecting Libraries Tasmania items you can force an update by right clicking on the Zotero icon in your browser toolbar and clicking on Preferences > Advanced > Update translators.
My work on this translator was not entirely altruistic – it’s going to be very useful in the Everyday Heritage project as Kate Bagnall and I try to bring together sources relating to Chinese heritage in Tasmania.
But I’m also very happy to be able to update my spreadsheet of Zotero support in Australian GLAM organisations and put Libraries Tasmania in the green! #dhhacks
