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 Internet Explorer/Microsoft Edge throughout this process, and you'll want to close out of Word. Having trouble getting started? Contact SU Libraries for more help.
