Why should you use Zotero?

  • It's free, so you'll be able to use it forever, even after you leave the university.
  • It saves your digital files to your computer and backs them up in the cloud.
  • It works seamlessly with Microsoft Word.
  • It can also be used with Google Docs, LibreOffice, LaTeX, and other text editors.
  • It automates a lot of processes, like attaching PDFs, that require extra steps in RefWorks.

Citation Styles

There are a few different citation styles that may be used in computer science including ACM, IEEE, and Chicago.  Check with your professor to see which one they would like you to use for your papers.
