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.

Upgrade for Free

If you’ve tried Zotero in the past, upgrade to Zotero 6 to see how they’ve created a whole new way of managing PDFs and annotations. Zotero’s new PDF viewer allows you to highlight text and add notes to articles for future reference, and by signing in through your JMU email, you now have access to unlimited storage.

You can upgrade from within Zotero by going to Help → “Check for Updates.”
