Citation Management Tool: Zotero

Zotero is a citation management application that allows you to collect book and article citations from the library catalog and other databases. Zotero also connects with your word processor (MS Word, Google Docs, Libre Office) to insert in text citations and generate a reference list in your selected citation style. 

See the library guide, Manage Citations with Zotero, on how to use this tool. The Library provides workshops and support for Zotero.
