Zotero: About Zotero

Citation Manager Accessibility

The Libraries aim to provide and recommend to our patrons accessible products whenever possible. Current citation management tools offer varying levels of support for disabled users, so we encourage you to try out each until you find the one that best meets both your research and access needs. If you have questions regarding accessibility of citation tools, need assistance addressing accessibility concerns with a citation tool, or have recommendations, please contact the accessibility librarian.

About Zotero

Zotero desktop software interface

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is an application that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use, connects with your web browser to download sources, and best of all it's free.

Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies.

Installing Zotero

This video will show you how to get started setting up Zotero on your computer. You'll want to make sure that you're not using Apple's Safari browser throughout this process, and you'll want to close out of Microsoft Word. 

Having trouble getting started? Contact Syracuse University Libraries for more help.
