Importing Records into Zotero

When the Zotero Connector browser extension recognizes bibliographic record data on a web page, it places an icon in the extension menu of your browser, usually at the top and to the right of the address bar. This icon will be different depending on the kind of resource Zotero detects on the page. Some of the possibilities include:

Book Article Collection Website

If Zotero cannot detect any bibliographic data on the page, it will give you the option to save the record for the web page itself. Make sure you have the Zotero app open to the collection or sub-collection you want to save the record to, then click the icon to import the record into Zotero.

If you are trying to import a record from the Kroemer Library catalog, make sure to click the title of the book so that the full record for the book is displayed. Zotero will most likely display the Collection icon. Clicking this will bring up a small window listing all the books in your search results.

Check the boxes for the records you want to import into Zotero and then click “OK.” When you switch back to Zotero, you will see all the items you selected are now displayed in the collection you had open in Zotero. Be sure to double check all the information in the record to ensure it is accurate and formatted correctly. For more information on how to do this, see the Editing Records in Zotero page.

Note: If you import a bibliographic record from an EBSCO database that includes full text (such as the ATLA Religion Database), Zotero will automatically save a copy of the full text PDF. If you double-click the resource in Zotero, it will open this PDF.

Keep in mind that free Zotero accounts only have 300 MB of storage space. If you would like to turn off the auto-save function to save space, right click the Zotero icon in your browser and select “Options.” Under the General tab, make sure “Automatically download associated PDFs and other files when saving items” is not checked.
