Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a web-tool that helps you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. It lives in the web browser itself. You must download and install it before getting started. You can also download Zotero Standalone for Mac OS, Windows or Linux. Zotero will not work with Internet Explorer but there are connectors for Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
- Go to Zotero's site
- Download Zotero 5.0. Using 5.0 you can access your references from any computer with Zotero installed.
- If this is your first time using Zotero, you will have to create a free account. This creates a space for you on the Zotero server and allows you to add or access your references from any computer through the Zotero interface.
Note: Zotero updated to version 5.0 from 4.0 in November 2017.
Zotero video tutorials
- Note: These tutorials are for the older version of Zotero (Zotero 4.0). The interface has changed, but the videos are useful for learning about Zotero's features. Please review the Zotero Support link above for more recent content.
