Zotero Bookmarklet

The Zotero Bookmarklet can be used to save the page you are viewing to your Library on the Zotero Servers and Zotero Standalone.  It works with iPads, so you can capture web pages on your mobile device.  It works with other browsers and mobile devices!

To use with Zotero Standalone and Internet Explorer, use the Desktop option and right click on the "Save to Zotero" button and save it to your Bookmarks Tool Bar.  Make sure Standalone is open.  It will not work with all sites, but when it does it gives you the option to save the references from the page you are currently viewing.

Zotero Plugins, Add-ons, and Mobile Features

Since Zotero is Open Source, its users have developed other plugins, add-ons and moblie apps.  Be sure to search for Zotero in your Add-on Manager of Firefox.

Plugins for Zotero

Zotero provides a page which lists its plugins developed by its users. Consult this page for the most up-to-date plugins.

Please Note: as good as the plugin for Google Scholar sounds, use it with caution.

Zotero Mobile Features

While there are no official Zotero apps for mobile devices, there are several third party solutions. (from Zotero/mobile, be sure to check this page for updated apps)
