What is Zotero?

Zotero is a desktop application that allows you to:

  • Manage and organize the bibliographic references you find in library catalogues, databases, and on the web
  • Prepare a bibliography or reference list automatically
  • Insert and automatically format in-text citations and a bibliography into a paper using Microsoft Word, LibreOffice, Google Docs and other word processors and writing systems.

Zotero Help

Who should I contact if I need help or if I have questions?

Citing Engineering Village

The Zotero web browser plug-in is not currently working with the Engineering Village database (including Compendex, Inspec and GEOBASE). To cite articles from Engineering Village using Zotero please refer to the Engineering Village Zotero Instructions

Word Processor Integration

After downloading and installing the Zotero desktop application, the related plugins should automatically be installed on whatever word processing software you have on your computer. More information about these plugins, including detailed explanations of their features, can be found through the following links:

Installing Zotero on Office 365 Word

It is possible to install Zotero on the Office 365 version of Word but the installation is more complicated than with other versions. For assistance please refer to the Office 365 Zotero Installation Guide below, or contact lib-citation@concordia.ca for assistance.

Transferring Citations from Refworks to Zotero

The steps required to transfer citations from Refworks to Zotero be found on our Refworks to Zotero migration guide.

Refworks will not allow you to export your folder or subfolder structure. If you have your RefWorks citations organized in folders you will need to export each folder individually. If you need help bringing your RefWorks citations over to Zotero please contact the library's citations team at lib-citation@concordia.ca.
