About Zotero

What Zotero Does

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a tool that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use, lives in your web browser where you do your work, and best of all it's free.

Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies.

It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.

This guide will help you get started with Zotero.  More guides and screencast tutorials are available at the Zotero site.
