Citing your sources is an essential part of academic writing. This tutorial shows how and why scholars cite the way they do.
Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a free extension that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use and lives in your web browser where you do your work. Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies using Word (for Mac or Windows) or OpenOffice.
You can use Zotero as an extension, or you can use the Zotero Standalone.
References can be added to a Zotero library in many different ways: directly from databases, journal websites, Google Scholar or the library catalog, by reference file import (for example from an EndNote library) and by entering them manually.
