More complete documentation, along with instructional videos, is available at Zotero's web site. The Library sometimes offers workshops on Zotero and other citation management tools. We will do so "on demand" if a minimum of 5 students will be in attendance. You can also email questions to Jennifer Dorner at Doe Library or David Eifler at the Environmental Design Library.

To keep Zotero's user interface in one language, but to use another language for the citations and bibliographies created by Zotero, select the citation language you would like to use from either:
JURIS-M is an unofficial version of Zotero that allows you to store transliterations and translations of names, titles, and other fields, and create citations and bibliographies that show this inoformation.
