Zotero: What is Zotero?

What Is Zotero?

Zotero is a tool that can help you build a personal library of source information from articles, books, documents, web pages, and more.  This personal library of sources can work with your word processing tool to format a paper in your choice of style.

  • Save citations from databases, web sites, and library catalogs
  • Manage, categorize into collections, and organize
  • Cite sources "in-text" as you write and create reference lists in most styles (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago, Vancouver, etc.)
  • Attach PDF's, images, web page snapshots, reading notes, and more to citations in your collection

Zotero is an extension for the Firefox web-browser (or can be downloaded for the Chrome or Safari connector) that runs in its own pane, separately from web pages. It automatically detects content in your web browser, allowing you to add to your personal library with a single click.
