Getting Started with Zotero

Zotero has a number of screencast guides that explain the basics of using the software. 

To get started, you need to download either the browser extension for Firefox or Zotero standalone, which can be used with Chrome or Safari.

If you choose to use the Firefox extension, your Zotero Library will live within your browser window, and can be opened and closed by clicking the Zotero icon in the bottom of your browser window. Zotero standalone will open your library in a separate window and will enable you to send citations from Chrome or Safari to your Zotero library.
