Zotero User Guide

A guide to using Zotero

Installing Zotero

To use Zotero, you'll need to install two things:

  1. The Zotero application itself
  2. A connector to allow your browser to save citations to Zotero

Both of these are available from the Zotero download page.

Step 1. Install the Zotero Application

 

Download and install Zotero from the Zotero website.

(There's a different version for each operating system: Windows, Mac or Linux.)

Step 2. Install Connectors

 

Connectors allow your web browser to save citations to your Zotero library.

The Zotero downloads page should automatically detect what browser you're using and give you a link.

Note: Each browser has its own version of the Zotero connector, so if you use Chrome, Firefox and Safari you'll need to install all three.
