This guide is an introduction to using Zotero, the Library's recommended citation management software tool, in your research workflow. This information was presented to Prof. Gina Myers' EXDL-802 Executive Leadership Doctoral Seminar. The agenda below includes links to documentation or examples that we will be referring to during the live talk and which might be useful in case you want to review the material later.
