Introduction to Zotero

Zotero is one type of citation management software (or bibliographic management software). It allows you to create your own personal library of references to books, articles and documents. References can include citation information (author, title, publisher, etc.) as well as annotations, graphics, and even copies of the documents themselves. The software works with Microsoft Word and other word processors to automatically add references to your paper and format your bibliography in the proper style (MLA, APA, Chicago Style, etc.).

If you are working on a paper, including an Honor's Thesis, Master’s Thesis, or dissertation, consider signing up for a Zotero workshop!

Using the Zotero citation management tool, students will be able to

Import citations into Zotero from the library’s subscription databases, Google Scholar and Library Catalog

Organize the citations into folders

Add a note and annotate citation

Use the Write and Cite tool to insert citation and create bibliography/references while writing
