Zotero User Guide: Intro

A Guide to using Zotero to manage references and help you create citations and bibliographies in your papers


Hello and welcome to the guide for Zotero! 

Zotero is a software program designed to help you store and manage citation information for resources you find relating to your research. 

Use Zotero to store online books, journal articles, PDFs, and other materials in organized folders. Zotero will also generate citations and bibliographies directly into Microsoft Word documents, using the citation style of your choice (MLA, APA, Chicago, and many others). 


How to Get Zotero

Create a free account with Zotero here. Then install the program. 

When registering, use a personal email account, not your Saint Anselm email. Your Anselm email will not allow you to download the browser extension, necessary to use Zotero.
