Zotero is an open access reference management software. Using it you can collect, organize, cite, format your references, and share your research sources. Download it on the Zotero site and register for an account. Zotero is easy to use; however, it can be complicated to install so you may want guidance.


For an instruction session on installing and using Zotero for you or a class, contact one of the liaison librarians:
