Using Zotero

Zotero is a free and open source citation management tool.

Zotero is a free tool you can you use to:

  • gather, save, and organize bibliographic data (and PDFs!) as you're doing your research
  • create a bibliography as you're writing your paper
  • share your research sources with colleagues, or the world

Your Zotero account can be synched across multiple devices, so you can begin work on one computer and then switch to another, or to a mobile device.
