Welcome to the Zotero research guide.

Using the New Zotero Website

Zotero's website has been completely updated to allow you to not only view your Zotero Library but also create and manage items through the website, using the editing icons above your list of resources or by clicking on an individual item. Just as you can edit any metadata using your Zotero pane within your browser, you can edit your Zotero resources right through Zotero's website. As always, you can view any attached items through the web interface.

Collaboration & Groups

Using Zotero to work collaboratively with colleagues and to share your research sources with the world is easy using Zotero Groups.

Group Types & Access:
You determine the level of visibility and access others have to your new group. Groups can be either Public or Private. Public groups can be open to anyone or by invitation only. Private groups are strictly visible to collaborators you invite to join your group.
