Zotero

Using the Zotero bibliographic management tool.

Why This Guide

Zotero is a bibliographic management tool that can help you keep track of your sources and so much more. The OU Libraries periodically offers Zotero workshops,but you may not be able to get to one. This guide can help you if:

  • you need to learn Zotero when a workshop isn't available;
  • you would like a refresher; 
  • you prefer learning at your own pace or on an as-needed basis;
  • you like to learn from video tutorials.

Need more help with Zotero? Contact Humanities Librarian Liorah Golomb, Science Librarian Claire Curry, or the OU librarian for your subject area.

What's in this Guide

This guide contains links, screenshots, and curated videos from Zotero's website and various academic libraries. Almost all of the videos are shorter than 4 minutes, and all offer the clearest, most useful, and most current tutorials we could find. Found something better? Let us know!
