This guide is designed to help you get started with and use the citation management application Zotero and its related tools.
Zotero is a free software application that allows you to collect, organize and access your personal research library from any computer. Zotero is available for GNU/Linux, Windows, and macOS. The Zotero browser connectors (currently for Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari) automatically sense citations and PDFs and let you add that content to your personal Zotero library with a single click. The Zotero plug-ins for Microsoft Word and LibreOffice allow you to add citations and bibliographies to your paper during the writing process. However, you can easily create a works cited or reference list directly from Zotero that you can add to your completed work.
While Zotero is free, you still have to register for an account. Use your @lion.lmu.edu or @lmu.edu email address for the account. Please confirm your email address as well.
