Zotero Basics

Zotero is a free, open source, easy-to-use Firefox add-on (and now works with Chrome and Safari) that helps you to collect, manage, cite, and share your research sources. It lives right where you do your work - in your web browser. Designed to be intuitive and unobtrusive, Zotero is a powerful and handy tool for any academic.

Zotero works on all three major operating systems: PC, Mac, and Linux!

IMPORTANT:  Since Zotero captures the information from databases and Web sites, the final version of your notes and/or bibliography may be incorrect (i.e. missing information or in the wrong order).  You still need to know how to do the specific citing style that you are using.
