About Zotero

Photo of zoteroWhat Zotero Does

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a Firefox addon 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.

Note:  Zotero cannot be installed in the Internet Explorer browser.

Getting Started

Installation instructions can be found on the side navigation tabs above this box (Firefox instructions) (Safari & Chrome instructions).
