Zotero on Campus Computers

Zotero - one of our favorite free research tools to save, organize, and cite references - is now available on computers in the library and across the UMKC campus. 

Zotero is a citation management tool that is free forever, allowing faculty, staff, and students to create a personal library of saved sources, references, and notes that live in the cloud or on their own computers. UMKC Information Services added the Zotero application to campus lab computers over the winter break. 

You can install and use the Zotero app for free on your own laptop or PC. You can use the web-based version from anywhere by logging in to your account at And now, when you log in to a campus lab computer, you can use the Zotero app there as well and sync your work to your personal library. 

This short video tutorial is step-by-step instructions for how to use Zotero on campus computers. If you have questions, just ask a librarian! Stop by a library service desk, or chat with us online 24/7, from anywhere.
