Together with Zotero, also download the web browser Zotero Connector from the right side of the same page. This is an extension of Zotero which allows you to import your references from the web into Zotero.  After the installation, a small icon appears on the address bar; by clicking on the icon, you can add references from web pages and databases into your Zotero.
