Zotero @ Levy Library: Zotero: Getting Started
Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your information sources. It automatically senses content in your web browser, allowing you to add citations and pdf's to your personal library with a single click. Whether you're searching for a preprint on arXiv.org, a journal article on PubMed, a news story from the New York Times, or a book from the library catalog, Zotero has you covered with support for thousands of sites.
If you are a FireFox user, you may want to download Zotero for FireFox, which displays your Zotero library within your browser. This option allows you to import and organize references without ever leaving your browser.
Zotero Standalone is the standard option, and installs as a separate application on your computer. After installing Zotero Standalone, we recommend adding a Browser Extension which will allow you to easily add reference to your Zotero library.
In addition to whichever interface you select, you will also have access to your Zotero library online at zotero.org, allowing you to read attached articles, add references, and organize your library from anywhere with an internet connection. Use the button below to select your interface and get started with Zotero!
If you are on a Mount Sinai-issued PC, you may notice that Zotero's Cite While You Write functionality does not integrate into Microsoft Word. Please follow these steps to request a security workaround to enable this add-on.
