Check out our guide to getting started with Zotero.
Zotero is a free, easy-to-use software that can help you collect, manage and cite your research sources. It functions as a stand-alone desktop application that can be used with Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or Safari. (The Firefox browser extension version of Zotero is no longer available due to changes in code of the browser.) It has a group function that enables multiple users to share citations. Install zotero by visiting zotero.org.
Zotero documentation includes information on installation and a helpful Quick Start Guide, as well as a FAQ.
If you are majoring in the sciences, you may want to consider using EndNote as your citation manager. Check out our guide to getting started with Endnote.
WCTS makes a licensed version of EndNote available to students. Students can get the installer from the WinApp server. See instructions below:
On a Mac: Go > Connect to Server > smb://winapp/apps/ (log in with Whitman username and password)
On Windows 10: "This PC" from File Explorer > Map a Network Drive > \\winapp\apps\
The direction of the slashes is important for Mac vs. Windows!
There is a knowledge base article
on connecting to a network drive.
