What is Zotero?

Zotero is a free citation management software.  It automatically senses content and allows you to add it to your personal library with a single click. Whether you want to add a book citation from our library catalog or Amazon, a journal article from JSTOR or a news story from the New York Times, Zotero allows you to add the citations with a click.  You can use Zotero to create a bibliography (cited reference page) or add footnotes.
