Introduction to the reference management tool Zotero

Zotero is a reference and knowledge management software. This web based tool works mainly as an add-on to the browser. It supports students and researchers manage their literature, as well as help them to cite correctly in the writing process.

In this workshop we will discuss:

  • Installation
  • Functions of the Tool
  • How to add new items
  • Organizing content
  • Searching within Zotero
  • How to use Zotero to cite whilst writing
  • How do groups work in Zotero
