Manually Adding Items
You can also manually add a citation.
Saving PDFs and Other Files
Zotero will try to add a PDF when you first save the item. However, if it is unable to do so, or if you get the PDF later via interlibrary loan, you can add it.
Create Collections (Folders)
You can create folders to organizing your items by course, by topic, anything you want. This is way to have work associated with a particular class project.
Bibliography, In-Text Citations, and Notes
You can copy and paste your bibliography (aka Works Cited, References), in any format you want, from your Zotero.org library. However, you will have to add your own In-Text citations and notes on your Chromebook.
