What is Zotero?

Zotero is bibliographic software that enables users to create and store citations from the Internet, library catalog, or databases, and create customized bibliographies. Citations can be added to Zotero manually or imported from many Library and Instructional Technology databases, including the WorldCat library catalog, and even from Google Scholar.  Your RefWorks, EndNote, and other bibliographic files can also be easily converted into Zotero "libraries." The files that you create can be shared with others, or worked on by a group. The citations can be inserted into Word documents in a citation format you wish to use, such as APA or MLA.

How to get started?

You can download the basic version of Zotero 5.0 for mac, Windows, or Linux, then register for a free account.  

If you have any questions about Zotero you can send an email to, stop by the Library Services Desk, or call 570-577-1462.
