Download and install Zotero from the Zotero website.

NOTE: There's a different version for each operating system: Windows, Mac or Linux.



Step 2. Install connectors

Connectors allow your web browser to save citations to your Zotero library.

The Zotero downloads page should automatically detect what browser you're using and give you a link.

NOTE: Each browser has its own version of the Zotero connector, so if you use Chrome, Firefox and Safari you'll need to install all three.
