Getting started with Zotero

Zotero

Zotero is a free, multilingual, easy-to-use, yet sophisticated, tool that helps you collect, organize, cite and share your research sources.

To use Zotero, you must first download and install it on your computer (compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems). Be sure to close Microsoft Word or OpenOffice before installing.

Once Zotero is installed, you need to add the Zotero connector for your browser (compatible with Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera).

Additional installation instructions are available (please note, Zotero 5.0 was released in July 2017 and some of the documentation has not yet been updated).

The following guides have been developed by the Library and are used at workshops:
