Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a citation management system for collecting, managing, sharing, and citing sources. It's easy to use, connects with your web browser, and it's free!
Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes, and images to your citations, organize them into collections, create bibliographies, share citations, and to add them to documents while you write.

Introduction to Zotero
Zoom Session (Online)
Are you writing a research paper or ready to start your thesis? Looking for an easy way to collect, manage, share, and cite bibliographic references? 'Introduction to Zotero' may be just the quick-start session you need. Zotero is an open-source community-developed bibliographic citation manager that has similar capability to EndNote. Demonstrations will include importing citations into Zotero from academic sources, preparing bibliographies, using word processor integration, cloud sharing functionality, and other topics as audience interest dictates (and as time allows).
'Introduction to Zotero' is being offered online only via Zoom. Please visit http://imss.caltech.edu/services/voice-mobile-conference-calls/zoom for more information about getting and using Zoom.
There are no scheduled classes at this time. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you're a member of the Caltech community and interested in scheduling an individual session.
