Zotero is a free, easy-to-use program to help you collect, manage, and cite research sources. It integrates with your web browser (Chrome, Firefox or Safari), offers one-click saving for many items, and lets you share research with colleagues. Zotero also has special tools for Word and OpenOffice to make adding citations and bibliographies to your own papers a cinch.

The PDF handouts available below give detailed instruction on how to set up a Zotero account, start saving sources, and add citations to your own papers, along with tips to use the program effectively.
