What is Zotero?
Zotero is an application that helps you collect and store your citation information for later use in papers and bibliographies. You can link to or attach PDF files to your citations then use Zotero's Word plug-in for one-click in-text citations as you write. When you're finished, another one-click installs your completed bibliography.
