      Citing Sources

      Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free application that collects, manages, and formats citations and bibliographies. Zotero also helps organize your research by allowing you to attach PDFs, notes, and images to your references. You can arrange your sources into collections for different projects and tag them for easy searching.  You can get information about installing and using Zotero on the Library's guide on to How to Cite Sources
