Major Zotero Changes

Zotero iconThe citation management tool Zotero recently released its newest version, Zotero 5.0, which comes with numerous improvements and one major change: Zotero 5.0 runs only as a standalone application (with browser connectors). There is no longer a separate Zotero for Firefox that can be used independently of the standalone application. Read more about the unified Zotero experience.

If you’ve been using Zotero for Firefox on your personal computer, you will be upgraded to the new Zotero Connector soon, at which point you’ll also need to download the standalone version of Zotero. If you are already a user of Zotero Standalone, the new version will be an enhancement of what you’re used to.

In the Graduate Center Library, we are working to install Zotero 5.0 on the public computers. We hope to have it ready to use on all computers soon.
