Zotero

An introduction to Zotero

Getting References From Websites

Sometimes 
you
 may
 want
 to 
add
 a web page as a reference 
to
 your
 Zotero library,  
but
 a
 reference 
icon
 may not appear
 in
 the
 address
 bar.



You can use the Zotero functionality to add any web page Open 
Zotero
 and
 select 
the Create
 New 
Item
 from
 Current
 Page
 icon.


  • Saving the article (with Snapshot) will save a copy of the web page article as well
  • Zotero 
will 
fill 
in 
as 
much 
information
 as 
it 
can,
 by pulling information from the metadata.
  • 
You 
may
 need 
to
 add
 some
 additional details, to make the reference complete so that it works with your reference style
  • The snapshot of the web page will be stored with your references. This is handy it it's a newspaper article, which may not be permanently available on the web page, or if the web page dissapears in the future.
