What is Zotero?

Zotero is a free and easy-to-use citation management system. Collect and store references using Firefox.

With Zotero, you can

  • Automatically download citations from library resources and the web
  • Format papers and bibliographies
  • Collect and store references on your own computer, and access from the web with a free Zotero account
  • Manage all the information you come across, and your information lives on your own computer
  • Nothing changes or goes away when you leave Dominican, and you can share your references with people outside of Dominican
  • Can be easily accessed through Firefox


Workshops offer step-by-step instruction on how to use Zotero.  See a list of upcoming workshops.
