Zotero 101: Home

Use Zotero to organize your research.

Why this matters

It's happened to most of us. You're sitting at your computer trying to remember how you found that article your freshman year because it would be perfect for the paper you are about to write. Don't you wish there was a way to keep track of your sources? If your answer is yes, keep reading. This is about to get good.


What is Zotero?

Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. It lives right where you do your work—in the web browser itself. Zotero 3.0 is a stand alone version that allows use with several browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Google Chrome.

How does Zotero work?

Zotero is a research tool that can automatically sense content, allowing you to add it to your personal library with a single click. Whether you're searching for a journal article from JSTOR, a news story from the New York Times, or a book from your ETBU library catalog, Zotero has you covered with support for thousands of sites.
