Zotero Groups

One of the best tools included in Zotero are the Groups. 

Groups can include an unlimited number of users and automatically include a shared group library. This is a great tool for collaboration and shared citations seamlessly between account. 


In the web version of Zotero, you can search for, or create, a group.

  • There are a variety of options for Groups whether they need to be Public and open or Private.

Once you've created or been added to a Group, you'll automatically find the Group Library listed in your Zotero App.

  • Anyone in the Group has access to and can add to the Group Library.
  • You can add items, organize, and cite within the Group Library the same way that you do in your personal Library.
