About Zotero

Zotero ("zoh-TAIR-oh") is a free research tool that allows you to:

  • Collect & organize citations
  • Attach PDFs, notes, and images to your citations
  • Cite sources within your paper/thesis
  • Share Zotero libraries (folders)

It's easy to use, lives in your web browser where you do your work, and best of all, it's free.  Zotero works with Firefox, which allows you to work directly from your web browser.  It is also available for Chrome, Safari, and IE.
