Zotero Alert

Hi All,

I thought I’d let you all know to be on the look-out if you’re using Zotero for your bibliographies. It’s not a big problem, but it’s worth double-checking when you create your Works Cited page. I just used the function for another paper and two things happened with the authors identification section. This only happened with the works with multiple authors:

The first problem I had was with Zotero getting the authors right but messing up the MLA style. Rather than doing it: Clark, Jared and Jack LarderĀ  it tried to say Clark, Jared, and Larder, Jack. This is a very minor detail and maybe only a style stickler like myself actually cares. The second problem I encountered was a bit more serious.

One of my articles had two authors but for some reason Zotero combined them using one of the authors’ last name as the first author’s middle name. So be on the lookout.
