Zotero is a free citation management program that helps you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources and enables the download, capture, and indexing of full text, web pages, and research notes. It also allows you to insert citations in Word documents in a wide variety of writing styles, such as APA, Chicago, etc.
Download Zotero at www.zotero.org.
You have a choice when you download Zotero. You may download either Zotero for Firefox or the Zotero Standalone.
- If you download Zotero for Firefox, be sure to also download the Zotero plug-ins for Microsoft Word or LibreOffice.
- If you download Zotero Standalone, be sure to download at least one browser connector so that you can pass citations from your browser to Zotero.
There are helpful web tutorials on the Zotero site, but the libraries are also here to help you use Zotero.
