[ETA, August 2022: The new PDF Annotation features within Zotero in 2022 have really streamlined this process! I’m leaving this post up in case it is helpful for anyone, but check out my update here.]

I’ve put together a small page with a beginner’s guide to using Zotero for file management — in hopes this can help out with scholars and teachers who want to use Zotero not just as a reference manager but as a way to stay organized with their own files. Here’s the Link!

So many of us have an overflowing file drawer or storage drive full of poorly maintained and hard to find PDF files — this is one smooth answer. 

The work from this page was presented at the JMU Teaching and Learning with Technology conference on October 29th, 2018.
