This tab teaches you how to sync and share your references with your online Zotero account.
The instructions in this guide apply to version 5 of Zotero and Word 2016.
Zotero allows you to sync your library with a Zotero web account for access from any computer. Zotero gives each user 300MB of storage for syncing file attachments (everything else, including items, notes, links, tags, are synced without limit). If you need additional storage for syncing file attachments, you may purchase more space.
Syncing is not a substitute for backing up! What if you accidentally delete a bunch of references? You'll lose them for good the next time your library syncs. Here's how to make a backup of your Zotero library:
Members of a group can copy records from a group folder and add them to their personal Zotero library. To create a group, click on the box icon in the upper lefthand corner of the Zotero interface. This will open a browser and the Zotero.org website. You can then name the group and invite other members to its library of references. Sync with the Zotero server and your Group Libraries should appear on the left side of the window under "My Library." For more information on sharing libraries, check the Zotero Support page for Groups.
