A guide to using the citation management tool Zotero.

Entering References Manually

In some cases, such as a reference in print, you may need to manually add a citation to your Zotero library. To add a citation manually, simply click on the PLUS button and select the type of citation you would like to add. A blank template will be added and you can populate the fields with citation information.
