Zotero

Zotero is free, easy-to-use software that helps you save, manage, and cite research sources.

Zotero and EndNote

It's easy to use EndNote and Zotero together and take advantage of the best features of each, or to share Zotero libraries with colleagues using EndNote or vice versa. Both programs can read and write a standard citation file format called RIS, which means references can be converted back and forth with a few clicks.

PDFs and other attachments do not export between programs, however; only citation information.

Zotero to EndNote

To save your Zotero library for importing into EndNote, click the Zotero button that looks like a gear and choose "Export Library." Choose RIS as the file type and pick a filename.

In EndNote, click "File" and then "Import." Click the "Choose File" button and select the file you just exported from Zotero. Set Import Option to "Reference Manager (RIS)" and click Import.

EndNote to Zotero

To export your EndNote library for use in Zotero, click "File" and then "Export." Set the output style to "RefMan (RIS) Export" and save it as a text file.

In Zotero, click the button that looks like a gear and choose "Import." Just double-click the file you exported from EndNote. The new references will be added to a collection named "Imported" followed by the date and time.

Find it@USF and Zotero

Check SFX for availability.  A new window will open.* 

You've probably seen the Find it @ USFbutton in some article databases that allows you to locate the full text of an article online. Zotero allows you to use the same feature.

To set up Zotero to access the Find it @USF server, click the gear button on the Zotero toolbar and choose Preferences. Click Advances, then search for resolvers. Zotero should find USF

You can also enter http://sfx.fcla.edu/usf in the resolver field

Then click OK. Once you've set this up, you can click the Locate button on any citation you're viewing to search for the item online.
