Zotero is a powerful all-in-one tool for collecting, managing, and citing research sources. Beyond its almost magical citation–grabbing features, Zotero allows you to save, organize, and share references, and you can easily insert properly formatted citations and bibliographies directly into papers using Zotero’s add-ins for Microsoft Word or LibreOffice. It's an essential tool for anyone doing academic research and writing. You'll never do bibliographies the same way again!
As of August 2022, ZSR Library is providing unlimited Zotero file storage to all Reynolda Campus users. Anyone with a wfu.edu email address can now sync unlimited file attachments to their Zotero online library, including PDFs, audio and video files, images, and Word documents.
