Upcoming Zotero Demonstrations

Zotero Drop-In Sessions

We are offering two Zotero drop-in sessions during November.

If you have questions about installing Zotero, adding items to your Zotero Libray, or integrating Zotero with Word, please drop by. We are happy to help.

Look for additional demonstrations in Winter 2021.

If you would like to start using Zotero or if you prefer to learn on your own, please feel free to explore this guide.

The tab titled "Getting Training & Help" will lead you to handouts, guides, and other helpful materials.

Zotero Features

Zotero is an amazing tool for researchers. With Zotero, you can:

  • collect citations to books, journal articles, and other sources;
  • organize these citations using collections and tags;
  • integrate references and bibliographies into Word and Google Docs files;
  • share your Zotero library with others with Zotero Groups;
  • sync your Zotero library among your computers, such as home and work, and;
  • store digital copies of sources, such as PDFs of journal articles (storage limits apply).

Get Zotero, Get Started

At the Zotero site, click on the red "Download" box.

You will need to download both Zotero and the Zotero connector.

(Zotero works with Firefox, Chrome, and Safari browsers only.)


If you don't have many citations to manage, you may not need all of Zotero's features. You should try ZoteroBib.

ZoteroBib allows you to create bibliographies quickly and easily. No downloading of software or creating an account required.
