How do I add a book to Zotero?

There are a few different ways to add a book reference to Zotero: Manually, by identifier, or by icon.


  • Manually: Manually enter the book's bibliographic information.

  • By identifier: Type in the ISBN for the book. ISBNs uniquely identify books and can be found on the publisher information page in the book or often through a seller's book listing online.

  • By icon: If you are using an online eBook and have installed the Zotero browser extension, an icon (a different icon for each type of source) appears in the browser toolbar. Click on the icon and the information will automatically be imported into your Zotero library.
