Zotero Resources Page

Thanks for visiting our Zotero Resources page!  I recently conducted an hour-long webinar that detailed how I use Zotero to store and manage references.  Videos of that session can be viewed below and are split by topic.  We have also placed further Zotero resources below.  If you find a resource you particularly like on the web, and would like me to add, email me at hain1a@cmich.edu or @adamhain on Twitter!

APA Style

Citation is all about following the conventions of an accepted style. Various journals and fields use different formats, and Zotero can support many. However, APA is the style most used in the social sciences and the one you likely be using. The links below offer a bit of guidance, but the APA style guide is your go to resource.
