Introduction to Zotero
Are you typing citations and bibliographies by hand? Having trouble keeping all your references organized? Why not try Zotero? Zotero is a free citation management tool that helps you stay organized, quickly format citations, and generate bibliographies for your research.
This workshop assumes no prior knowledge of Zotero. We'll show you how to import citations from library databases and other sources, organize and edit items in your Zotero library, add in-text citations to a document, and build an automated bibliography in the citation style for your discipline.
Already familiar with Zotero and want to learn more? Sign up for one of our Advanced Zotero Workshops or make a Zotero appointment with a member of our Zotero support team.
Installation: Zotero is free software for Mac, Windows, or Linux. Please use the "Zotero Set Up Checklist" on Brandeis Library's Zotero Guide in order to download and install Zotero prior to the workshop.
