Use Zotero for searching online bibliographics and organise your references.

Primary page content

Zotero is a freely available reference management tool that is recommended and supported by the Library and Subject Librarians.

Reference management systems are time-saving tools that allow you to:

  • Collect and store references for the resources you read as you go
  • Manage and organise your references for different assignments or modules
  • Quickly add in-text citations to your assignments
  • Automatically generate a reference list from these in-text citations

Zotero is free to download from the Zotero website and is available on campus computers

Training and Support

Documentation is available on the Zotero website, and the Library have created brief video tutorials.

Subject Librarians provide workshops on using Zotero for reference management as part of the Academic Skills Centre workshops.
