About Zotero

Photo by Karin DalzielWhat Zotero Does

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is free, open-source software that collects, manages, and organize your research and bibliographic information. It's easy to use and integrates with your web browser via a plug-in.

Zotero allows you to attach PDFs (or automatically saves them from databases when available), notes and tags to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create automated bibliographies.

You can set it up to work with a wide variety of bibliographic styles.
