If you're regularly using more than one computer in your research or want an online backup, Zotero's sync feature can keep your library up to date on all of them. Zotero can store a copy of your library on the Zotero.org server and check it for updates whenever you open your library on a different computer. All your computers must be running the same version of Zotero.
Follow the steps below to sync your Zotero collections on multiple computers.
Zotero allows you to search your library by keyword. The default search lets you search the citation and abstract, but if you install the plugin below you can search the PDFs* in your library.
*NOTE: PDFs that are images (unable to highlight/copy text), cannot be searched even with this plugin.
If you only have an article's citation and not the full-text, you can use the Zotero lookup (green arrow pointing right). There are two default Lookups - Google Scholar and CrossRef. Many times these lookups lead you to the citation again, but not the full text PDF. Below you can add the UNM Libraries Lookup, which can lead to the full-text.
Add the UNM Libraries lookup.
To see if it works (and try the other lookups too).
Zotero has 12 default citation styles, but you may download others (over 8300 styles available). To set your default style

In Word, the default setting for adding a citation is a bar, but you may change it to the "Classic" view. The Classic view provides more options and makes it easier to browse your Zotero library for a citation. See images below.
