-If you select the Library Lookup option, Zotero will try to locate your items in an online library catalog, so you can track down a physical or online full-text copy of the resource. By default, Zotero uses the [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​OpenURL|OpenURL]] service of [[http://​www.worldcat.org/​|WorldCat.org]],​ but you can specify a different OpenURL resolver (e.g., the OpenURL resolver of your local university library) in the [[preferences/​advanced#​openurl|Advanced tab]] of the Zotero [[preferences]]. Most university libraries provide their OpenURL resolver link on their websites. A list of OpenURL resolver links is also available [[/​support/​locate/​openurl_resolvers|here]].+If you select the Library Lookup option, Zotero will try to locate your items in an online library catalog, so you can track down a physical or online full-text copy of the resource.
