Zotero: to use or not to use?

The Newsam Library does NOT currently support Zotero.  However, you can still use the software on your own machines as it is available to download for free.  This guide will help you get started as it provides instructions on how to install and use Zotero, both as a Firefox browser plugin and as a standalone system.

About Zotero

Photo by Karin DalzielWhat Zotero Does

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a Firefox addon that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use, lives in your web browser where you do your work, 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.

It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.
