What is Zotero?

Zotero is a free citation management tool that will help you to save and organize sources, create citations in a wide variety of formats, and share sources with others in a group. Zotero connects easily with Microsoft Word and Google Docs so you can insert citations directly in your text and automatically generate a reference list.
