Locate items in your Zotero library in OhioLINK by clicking the green arrow in the right column and choosing 'Library Lookup'.
The default will search WorldCat, but you can adjust that in the 'Advanced' tab in 'Preferences'. Insert the OhioLINK link resolver in the OpenURL resolver box.
It's easy to add PDFs to your Zotero library and automatically import their citation info.
If Zotero can't find a match on Google Scholar, don't worry -- you can still save the citation from another catalog or article database, then drag the PDF onto the citation to make it an attachment.
By default, your Zotero library is stored in Firefox on your computer. You can change the location of the library to a portable drive or elsewhere.
Once you have citations in your Zotero library, you need to be able to find specific records. There are two different kinds of searches: quick search and advanced search.
You can use the tags associated with the different items to find them. (More information on tags is available in the Working with Tags section of this guide.) These can be the tags that you have created, or ones that were downloaded with the record from a library catalog or database.
You can also do an advanced search in a collection if you want your search to be more specific.
Note: You can save and name your search for future reference by clicking on Save Search and typing in a name. The search will be saved in the Left Panel. Any new items added to the library will be picked up automatically in these saved searches.
