Zotero: Install Zotero
for iPad

Zotero is free, easy to use software that helps you save, manage, and cite research sources.

Zotero on the iPad

You can use Zotero on the iPad browser by installing a "Bookmarklet," a special link that saves items directly to your Zotero account on the web.

You must have a Zotero account, and your iPad must be online, to use Zotero.

  1. Open zotero.org/downloadbookmarklet in your iPad browser and bookmark it.
  2. Click “iPhone/iPad” and copy the code from the text box on the page.
  3. Edit the bookmark you just created.
  4. Change the bookmark name to "Save to Zotero".
  5. Paste the code from the text box as the URL for the bookmark.

 

When you're on a page with a citation, select the Save to Zotero bookmark. The iPad browser will save the citation directly to your Zotero library online.
