D'Amour You Know

Zotero to the Rescue!

by Liz Cashman on 2019-10-10T14:32:00-04:00 | Comments

Are you working on a research paper or project that requires many sources? Do you have trouble keeping your research organized? Do you hate creating bibliographies from scratch? Good news - the citation management software Zotero can help keep you on track! 

Zotero and its accompanying browser extension (called Zotero Connector) allow you to collect, manage, and cite research sources all in one place. It's easy to use and 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.

As you encounter articles and other sources for your research, whether through the D’Amour Library’s digital resources or by searching Google, clicking Zotero’s browser extension will pull the citation information as well as the full-text (if available) to the Zotero software on your computer. From there, you can organize your sources and create bibliographies from those sources in many citation styles and formats. 

To give Zotero a try, go to and download both Zotero and the Zotero Connector. Need a little extra help? Visit the D’Amour Library’s Zotero guide where you can find more information, including tutorials, to make the most out of the software!
