Using Tags

"Tags are the most powerful mechanism for managing content. The main reason for this is because there is no limit to the number of tags you can put on any item. This lets you set up a system where you can filter and sort your Zotero Library in almost limitless ways to find specific content, and to see connections between items. Tags can also be used for other things, like managing your workflow. If you would like to take your Zotero usage to the expert level, getting comfortable with tags is a critical step on the path!"
