Why Zotero?

Zotero allows researchers to save references from library catalogues, research databases and web sites with a single click. It means your time is freed up from the tedious task of formatting citations, allowing you to focus on the research itself.

Why Zotero? Because it

  • is easy to use
  • resides in your web browser where research happens
  • works on both Mac and Windows
  • its word plugin is compatible with Microsoft Word and OpenOffice

and it allows you

  • to import, manage, and annotate citations from various sources
  • to include PDFs of articles and other documents
  • to handle research and citation management in the same place
  • to generate bibiographies in a wide range of styles
  • to access your Zotero library from any computer with an internet connection
  • to share libraries and group accounts
