Setting Up Zotero

1) To start using Zotero, download it from the Zotero Download Page

2) Be sure to install the Zotero Connector extension for your web browser as well. This extension seamlessly detects content as you navigate the web, enabling you to effortlessly save it to your Zotero library with just a single click.

3) You’ll also want to create a Zotero account. This allows you to sync and access your library from anywhere, and it lets you join groups, and back up all your attached files.

4) Install Zotero to your computer and open it up.
