Zotero is a software application with an active user and developer community that helps you collect, organize, cite, and sync your digital collections, either by yourself or in collaboration with others. It can help you find sources and cite them properly, in thousands of citation formats, mining metadata from a huge assortment of popular research portals while allowing you to custom tag and annotate your collections of materials and take them wherever you go. *Zotero originated at and continues to be developed by the [Center for History and New Media](http://chnm.gmu.edu/) at George Mason University* --- ## How to Get it - Firefox Plugin - Desktop Version - Word integration option *The DHC Toolkit includes the Firefox plugin* Zotero Downloads: [https://www.zotero.org/download/](https://www.zotero.org/download/) --- ## Basic Functions - compose bibliographic entries for any source - **harvest** metadata automatically from some sources - save and export bibliographies in all standard formats - share resources with others --- layout: false class: center, middle ## Organizational Features ### 1.
