The Connector allows you to capture citation information from your browser and save it to Zotero. PDFs may be captured as well where available. The plugin works with both Zotero desktop and web.
The Microsoft Word and Google Docs plugins allow you to insert in-text citations or footnotes while writing, and automatically generate bibliographies.
The Microsoft Word plugin works in conjunction with Zotero desktop, and should install automatically when you download the desktop application. When the Word plugin is installed, there will be a Zotero tab in the top toolbar of Word.
If the Word plugin does not install automatically, you may need to manually install it. For more information, see this support page.
The Google Docs plugin works in conjunction with the browser plugin (Connector). When you open a Google Doc in a browser that has the Connector installed, there will be a Zotero tab in the top toolbar of the document.
Zotero Groups allows you to create a shared collection (folder) between group members:
Note about storage: group folder storage draws from the storage account of the group owner.
Create, manage, or search for groups on the Zotero Groups page.
