New Look for Latest Zotero Version

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media has just release version 4.0 of Zotero, the research and citation tool. The major change in the new version is that Zotero now combines the address bar icon and the “Create Web Page Item from Current Page” button into a single save button. The save button is located on the Firefox toolbar, next to the existing Z button for opening the Zotero pane. Users will also have more options to customize how you open Zotero and save sources. More specific information about the changes to Zotero can be found on their blog.
