Adding Items to Zotero

Using Zotero Connector, you can collect sources quickly and easily! 

1. This is a "single-click capture" tool using the icon  found at the top right side of the browser for which you installed Zotero Connector.

2. The Zoterro Connetor icon will change form to let you know the type of metadata you are collecting. This icon will always be found in the same location in the top right-hand corner of your web browser. 



Important Note: In order to use this "single click" icon feature, Zotero citation manager must be open and ready to use first. Then, when you are ready to capture a source:

  1. Click the Save to Zotero Icon (for reference, see red arrow and icon above)
  2. Then choose to save to "My Library" or a specific "Named" collection folder
  3. Click on the down arrow to expand options
  4. If a .pdf is being cited, make sure the PDF icon is not grayed out
  5. Click Done
  6. When you are finished collecting sources, return to Zotero too see and manage all of your titles.
