Install Word Processor Plug-ins

Word processor plug-ins allow you to insert citations and bibliographies directly into your documents. Installing them is optional but highly recommended.

Word for Mac/Windows users:

  • Close Word.
  • Use the link labeled "Install the Word for Windows Plug-in" or "Install the Word for Mac Plug-in."
  • When you see the message "Firefox prevented this site from asking you to install software on your computer," hit Allow.
  • Hit Allow and Install now.
  • Restart Firefox when prompted.

If you're using Zotero Standalone, you don't need to install Word toolbars; they are included with Zotero Standalone.
