Quick Demo of saving things into Zotero using the browser connector:
Here are some additional ways to get things into your Zotero Library:
Add a PDF to your Zotero library and Zotero will automatically attempt to retrieve metadata for PDFs you add, whether you:
You can save references into Zotero with one click from most library catalogs (including Emory's discoverE catalog) and databases, and even some regular web pages.
If the Zotero connector in your browser detects that you're looking at a record for a book or article in a catalog, database, or a site like Amazon.com or the New York Times, the Zotero connector will display a book or page icon. Just click the icon to save the citation into your Zotero library.
If you're on a page of search results with many items, the Zotero browser connector will display a folder icon instead. Click the folder to get a list of all the items on the page, and check off the ones you want to save.
To save a single item from discoverE, click the "book" icon.
Save an individual article in a database by using the "page" icon:
Add a reference from an ISBN, DOI or PMID number. Click on the "wand" icon in your Zotero library and type the number into the box. Hit enter. If Zotero can find a matching number it will download a reference.
Zotero can't automatically capture citation info from some web pages, but you can still add them to your Zotero library.
Click the blue page icon to save a record of the page, a link to the page, and a "snapshot." A snapshot is a copy of the page saved. It includes the page's text and images, so if the page is removed later you'll still be able to refer to it. Snapshots of web pages become searchable items in your Zotero library.
