ZoteroBib for creating bibliographies quickly and easily

Lots of researchers love the easy, powerful, and free reference manager Zotero.

You can take advantage of many of the great features of Zotero with their new web-based bibliography creator, ZoteroBib. You don’t have to install any software, there are no ads, and it’s free.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to ZoteroBib at
  2. Enter a title, URL, ISBN, or other identifier for the source you’re citing.
  3. When you’re done entering sources, select the citation style you need (over 9000 styles available) and copy your bibliography to paste into your document.
  4. Don’t forget to double-check with your style manual – watch for capitalization and punctuation errors in particular.

Why should you use ZoteroBib instead of the Zotero, EndNote or Mendeley desktop applications?

  • Because you can’t or don’t want to install any software
  • You just need to create a quick bibliography without learning a new program
  • You don’t need to save or organize your sources for later projects

Why should you use Zotero, EndNote or Mendeley instead of ZoteroBib?

  • Saving and organizing sources in a personal library for long-term reference
  • Adding citations/footnotes into your Word document as you write
  • Adding your own notes, saving PDFs and other attachments
  • Synchronizing your personal library in the cloud and across multiple computers
