An introduction to Zotero

Creating "Collections" for your References

  • The folders, where references are stored in Zotero, are called Collections
  • To create a new one, go to the icon on the far left of the Add on panel
  • Select New Collection
  • Give the new Zotero Collection a name that makes sense considering what type of references you will be storing in it (e.g. your name, the area of study, or the title of your degree program etc.)
  • You will now see your new Zotero  Collection folder.
