Zotero Citation Management Tool: Gathering Citations with Zotero

Using Zotero to Gather Citations While Searching GALILEO

As you collect citations through GALILEO or the research database of your choice, you can upload Full Text articles to Zotero by clicking on the small document icon in the top right-hand corner side of the browser window

The icon is located in the top left-hand corner of Safari windows.

After you have finished searching and have saved several citations to Zotero, you'll need to organize them into a folder for your specific research project.
To add a new folder, click on the New Collection icon in the top left-hand corner of the Zotero application.

Once you have created your folder, drag each citation from the center panel and drop it into the folder on the left.

The citation will remain in the center panel because it's in your Library.
You can add each citation to as many different folders as you want in order to reuse it for different papers/projects.
