UBC Library Research Commons: Zotero

Zotero Training and Support

Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources.   Zotero was developed as an extension for Firefox  to "live" right where you do your work—in the web browser itself. Zotero runs in its own pane within Firefox, separately from web pages and scrapes information to populate the your citation database.

Zotero is free to download. You can download the most recent version whether you are using a Mac, Windows, or Linux operating system here:

NOTICE: Systematic downloading or harvesting articles, citations, metadata (e.g. using citation managers such as EndNote or Zotero) is strictly prohibited. (You must contact lib-license@lists.ubc.ca. Permission is required or a Text and Data Mining Package should be purchased.)

Zotero Workshops

The Research Commons team offers monthly 2-hour workshops to get you started with Zotero. In these hands-on workshops, you'll learn how to import and organize your research citations and format your bibliographies in the citation style of your choice. You'll leave the workshops with a basic database of research citations and the skills to build on it.
