Organizing References Using Zotero
We use Zotero to organize manuscript references and add these references to our manuscripts, grants, and other lab documents. Zotero has a stand-alone app, a web browser extension, and a plug-in for Microsoft Word and Google Docs.

We also use a Zotero Group Libary, so that we can all share and use the same references when collaborating on work. Please have Morgan invite you into the Shared Group.

You should keep a private library as well, which will automatically sync between any number of computers. First, add files to your private collection and then add them to the Sammons Lab Shared Group.
