Uppsala University Library


The University library offers free hands-on workshops for students and employees at Uppsala University on using the reference management software Zotero.

In the introductory course we will help you get started, install the software and create an account. We will cover how to create a reference library, save references to Zotero, add PDF files to your Zotero library, how to insert citations and create reference lists according to your chosen reference style.

The advanced course covers how to backup and recover your Zotero library, using Zotero with Google Drive, using Zotero on mobile devices and more.

If possible, please bring your own laptop to the workshop.
