Citation Management Tools: Zotero

Zotero is FREE software that allows you to save sources and automatically cite them, with many handy features:

  • Collect sources directly from CLIO
  • Organize your sources by project, class, subject, etc.
  • Cite your sources with automatic bibliographies and notes
  • Download and store full text PDFs and websites

How it works: Zotero screenshotSearch for sources in CLIO and save their information to your Zotero with one click. Manage sources in your Zotero library for each of your projects and generate bibliographies, footnotes, and endnotes automatically in Word to save time on formatting. Zotero uses browser extensions for Firefox (best option), Chrome, and Safari and word-processor plugins for Microsoft Word and others. Zotero is integrated with CLIO for optimal user experience.

Consult the Quick Start Guide for tips and videos on how to get started using Zotero. Be sure to download a word processor plugin to make the fullest use of Zotero with Word or other software.

Attend a Zotero Workshop from Columbia University Libraries.
