We are happy to announce a new screencast demoing Zotero’s Microsoft Word Plugin. This quick tour of the plugin demonstrates how to add references to documents and generate bibliographies from the growing list of bibliographic styles Zotero supports.
The Word plugin offers a powerful way to integrate your Zotero collection with your writing process, but it is worth noting that it is only one of many ways to do so. Zotero’s OpenOffice plugin offers similar functionality for OpenOffice users—check out Daniel de Byl’s screencast to see this plugin in action—and our Google Docs screencast demonstrates the power of dragging and dropping references into any text field. Each of these features and plugins bring us closer to our goal of seamlessly integrating your Zotero collection with the tools you use to write, compose and communicate.
