News and Updates


As of July 2017, Zotero has updated to version 5.0! Those who use the Firefox-based version will lose support this fall. Those who use the standalone version (which will now become the ONLY version) only need to update your platform. To do this go to Help -> Check for Updates.

For those Firefox-based version users who need to download the standalone, go here:  and then download the Firefox connector.  If you choose to wait, your version will be automatically updated in the next few months. 

For more information on the changes, email, or check out the links below.



*For those who use Zotero on public computing, please note that you SHOULD be able to use Zotero through Firefox OR Chrome. Please inform the Service Point if you have any issues using Zotero on these computers.

*All information on public computers is wiped overnight, so please remember to sync your Zotero before you log off, so the resources you added will appear when you next use it.


Zotero is a free citation management tool.

You can use Zotero to collect, manage and cite your research resources. You can also create collections/libraries for specific research projects, share data with collaborators, and generate bibliographies.
