Collect - Adding Items to your Zotero Library
If you use Zotero for Firefox or have installed Zotero Connectors for Chrome, Safari, or Opera, Zotero will try to automatically find bibliographic information on the web pages you visit.* For instance, if you are looking at the record for a book in an online library catalog, Zotero's save button in the Firefox toolbar will often switch the icon a book. On some web pages that list information about multiple items (e.g. a list of Google Scholar search results), Zotero will show a folder icon. Clicking this folder icon will open a window in which you can select the items that you want to save to your library. (Visit this page for more detailed info).
*Caution: Verify and Edit your records. Zotero's automatic citations are not always complete or accurate.
You can also manually add and edit items in your Zotero library.

Organizing your Zotero Library and Taking Notes
Items in Zotero libraries can be organized with collections and tags.
Tags are portable, but collections are not: copying individual items between Zotero libraries will transfer their tags, but not their collection placements. Both organizational schemas have unique advantages. Experiment with both to see what works best for your own workflow.
