How to Use Zotero

Zotero: Citation management software that saves, collects, organizes, cites, and shares research sources.

Zotero & Word

Zotero can manage your citations while you work in Word or OpenOffice.  If you've installed the Zotero 6.0, word processor plug-ins were included with that. 

After you do this, you'll be able to place in-text citations and create bibliographies from within your Word documents.

Macs  -- the Zotero toolbar will float near the top of your screen.  If you don't see it, go to the View menu, toolbars, then click Zotero to add a checkmark.

PCs --  after installing the plug-in you should see an Add-Ins tab or a Zotero tab, depending upon which version of Word you have.
