Zotero is a citation manager – software that helps you collect, organize, and cite your references.


With Zotero, you'll be able to

  • save article citations and PDFs directly from your browser to a personal reference library,
  • sync that library and access citations and PDFs across all your devices (work computer, home computer, tablet, etc),
  • organize your references into folders and add notes and tags to help keep track of your research,
  • and best of all, automatically generate and format in-text citations and bibliographies in your research papers!

Zotero is free to use. Check out our guide for video tutorials and step-by-step instructions on getting started:
