Getting Information into Zotero

Look for "Z" icon in the upper right or address bar of your browser. To save a reference to a web page, a book you find in CONSORT, or an article from one of the library databases, click  "Z" icon, and Zotero will automatically save your citation.

Here are some icons you may see depending on how Zotero interprets the contents you are looking at:   Books   Articles  Web pages


Note: One of Zotero's most compelling features is its ability to scrape bibliographic information about books, articles and web pages with a single click.
