A note about Zotero versions

Zotero Standalone will likely be the only edition available starting with version 5. Zotero for Firefox will probably be discontinued.

We recommend installing Zotero Standalone so that you won't have to change versions later.

About Zotero

Photo by Karin DalzielWhat Zotero Does

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is an application that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use, connects with your web browser to download sources, and best of all it's free.

Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies.

It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.

Installing Zotero

This video will show you how to get started. For more details, see the next page: Installing Zotero for Firefox.
