The Zotero Group Library

By making use of the free open-source reference manager Zotero, REMEL offers thousands of references to papers and books dealing with Renaissance & Early Modern Linguistics. Scholars making use of other reference managers can also benefit from or contribute to the database by downloading the library in various formats (RIS, RDF, BIBTEX, …)

How does it work?

The best way

Anyone using Zotero can subscribe to the Group Library REMEL- Renaissance Linguistics Archive. More information on Zotero Groups can be found at the Zotero Support Site.

Let's summarize the few steps you have to take in order to make optimal use of our library:

1. Use the free browser Firefox.
2. Download the free add-on Zotero 2.0.
3. Make a Zotero-Account and sync your personal library on-line.
4. Become a member of our Group Library REMEL- Renaissance Linguistics Archive.
5. You can search and download all references.

The advantage of using Zotero lies in the fact that you can perform searches in one of the folders or in all folders together, and that you can make and export bibliographies with one mouse click (see screenshot).

Right now, the Group Library contains three folders consisting of about 4500 records. In the near future, the Group Library will contain four folders with more than 6000 references. Later on, additional references will be added.

Although this library is meant as a heuristic tool in the first place, it can also be used for citing. However, the references might still contain (minor) mistakes. Before citing, please always control the references.

The contents of the Group Library are presented below.

Alternative ways

If you make use of other reference managers (such as Endnote, Citavi…), you might be interested in just downloading our libraries in one of the different formats offered (see below).

You do not (want to) use a reference manager but you are interested in the bibliographical references? Please just contact us.

New contributions

All scholars working in the field and working with Zotero are invited to share their own references (preferably labelled or tagged), in order to enhance the project.
