Zotero Guide

UTA Libraries' guide to the citation management tool Zotero

Adding citations automatically with Zotero Connector

1. In your browser, navigate to the webpage with content you wish to add to your Zotero citation library (journal article, newspaper article, website, etc.) and make sure that your Zotero desktop client is running.

2. Click the “Save to Zotero” button (the Zotero Connector), which is in the top right of the browser in both Chrome (pictured) and Firefox.

3. From the dropdown menu, select which collection you wish to save the web resource into.


It is highly recommended to check all automatically generated citations manually after creating them.
