Using Zotero

Inserting In-Text Citations

1. Go to the place in your word document that you would like to insert the parenthetical citation. Select the Add/Edit Citation button on the Zotero or Add-ins toolbar.

2. Select the citation style from the list and click OK.

3. A search box will pop that will allow you to search your Zotero library by author, title, keyword, etc. Search and select the citation you want to add. You may need to add in the page number.

4. Once you have made your selection, click on the citation in the search box and it will open up a screen so you can add page numbers. 

Here's an example of the citation as it should appear.
