How to Use Zotero

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


To remove duplicate records--also called deduping--open your Zotero 6.0 desktop software.

  • Click on the icon on the left named "Duplicate Items". This will display a listing of items Zotero believes to be duplicates.
  • Select which version you would prefer to keep;  differences will be displayed beneath the listing of the different versions.
  • Once you've decided on a final version, click on the "Merge Items" button and Zotero will remove the duplicate references.
