-It is important to understand that items can belong to multiple collections and sub-collections. Adding an item to multiple collections **does not duplicate** the item. In this sense, collections are more like photo albums or music playlists than folders in your computer filesystem. Just as a single photo can be added to more than one album or single song can be added to more than one playlist, a single item in a Zotero library can be added to multiple collections.+It is important to understand that items can belong to multiple collections and sub-collections.

-When items are saved to a Zotero library ​using the [[getting_stuff_into_your_library#​web_translators|Zotero Browser Connector]], tags are sometimes automatically added to items. For example, OPAC library catalogs provide subject headings for their records, which are saved as Zotero tags. Automatic tags behave the same as manually added tags but are marked by a red icon in the "​Tags"​ tab of the right-hand Zotero pane (versus the blue icon for regular tags).+When items are saved to a Zotero library [[adding_items_to_zotero#​web_translators|from the web]], tags are sometimes automatically added to items.
