Creating Citations with Zotero

This hands-on workshop did not include presentation slides. The links below will help you get started with Zotero. One of the attendees asked if there was a way to import Excel files into Zotero. The answer is yes, if you first import your Excel file into Endnote, then export the references in RIS format. Endnote has instructions for importing a tab-delimited file here. Learn how to export Endnote citations into Zotero here.

If you have questions, contact reflib@illinois.edu or one of PRI's information professionals.
