Collections help to organize references in the Zotero library. Collections are similar to file folders on a computer; however, references can exist in more than one collection at a time. Collections can be found on the left side of the Zotero library.
Information that Zotero collects about references can be find on the right side of the library. Bibliographic information, such as author, journal title, page number, etc. can be found in the 'Info' tab. To edit the information of any field, click on it. The only information that can not be changed are 'Date Added' and 'Modified.'
Library Lookup is a Zotero feature that attempts to use the library's link resolver to link to full text of an article through the library.
The steps to do this are below:
1. In the Zotero desktop app, click on Zotero-->Preferences (Mac) or Edit-->Preferences (PC). Click the 'Advanced' button.
2. In the OpenURL section, copy and paste the link below into (there should be a default WorldCat URL there), then close the preferences window.
3. Select a reference in the Zotero library, then click on the small green area on the right side of the Zotero window. This will open a menu; select Library Lookup.
You should be passed through the library's authentication process (Entering your e-ID and password maybe required if you are not already logged in with another library resources) and should be linked to the articles.
It may appear that no full text is available for an item. There are a few reason's why this happnes.
If there is a PDF with an article citation, Zotero will save the PDF along with the citation. If it does not save automatically, check the Zotero Preferences. To attached items in Zotero, changes need to made in the Zotero settings.
PDFs and other files can be attached to citations manually.
