Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. It lives right where you do your work—in the web browser itself.
Registering for your free Zotero account is quick, easy, and necessary to save your citations and link across multiple computers. This feature is especially important if you are using multiple computers around Butler's campus. Always remember to sync early, and sync often
When using the Zotero Extension in either Chrome or FireFox, you may try to save something and get a message like this:
If you do not have the Zotero Desktop App running, or you are using a public computer that does not have Zotero installed, this message will appear. You simply have to hit the button to enable saving to Online Library and log onto your Zotero account in the browser.
After doing this once, you should be able to save articles freely again.
