Citation Tools

Zotero is, at the most basic level, a reference manager. It is designed to store, manage, and cite bibliographic references, such as books and articles. In Zotero, each of these references constitutes an item. More broadly, Zotero is a powerful tool for collecting and organizing research information and sources.

This quick start guide will help you understand what Zotero can do to help you with manging and citing sources for research. You can also contact us at the library. We are here to help!
