Bibliographies can be generated automatically by selecting the items in Zotero, then dragging and dropping them into MS Word, One Note, wiki, blog, GoogleDoc or OpenOffice Writer. This can also be done from inside MS Word using the Word plug-in and Cite Where You Write toolbar.
A preloaded set of citations styles, including MLA, APA, Chicago and AMA are installed with Zotero. Additional styles are available for download on the Zotero site. If the style you are looking for is not available, there are instructions for modifying existing styles to create a new style on the Zotero site.
Select the Items to be included in the bibliography from Zotero's middle pane.
Right click and choose "Create Bibliography."
From the pop-up menu, select the style you want and make sure "copy to clipboard" is selected for the output method.
Go to the point in your Word document you want to insert the bibliography, and select Edit>Paste or Ctrl+V.
Always check the bibliography carefully! Zotero is a tool, not a live editor.
