Zotero

An introduction to Zotero

Getting the Browser Add-on for Firefox

Downloading the Firefox Add-on

The Browser Add on for Zotero allows you to have your references on your PC, easily accessible in your browser. This is very convenient if you are using your browser for research. If you don't have an internet connection, you can still see your references, even though you can't see your cloud account for Zotero

To get the Firefox (or other Browser) add on:

(1) Select the home tab, and then select the red Download Now button

(2) This will take you to the download options page.


(3) You will be given options to select which one, either the Brower add on (for Firefox, Chrome or Safari) or the standalone applications for Windows. We recommend Zotero 4.0 for Firefox, but the other browser versions are fine.
