Go to the database of your choice and do a search.
Click on the icon and select the articles to import to Zotero.
The documents you select will come with a snapshot of the document accessible through Zotero - you don't need to go back to the database to find the article. Learn how to make annotations on a snapshot.
If you're not sure which articles are going to fit your topic, click on an article title to get more information about it, then click the to add that article to your Zotero library.
When adding an article, Zotero will include a document screenshot; if the article is available in full text from this database, the screenshot will include the full text, which can be easily recalled - even when not connected to the Forsyth Library system - and annotated. If full text is not available, only a citation will be saved.
If the article is available as a pdf, the link to the pdf will be available from the snapshot (citation) page. You can also drag the pdf link down to the source record in the middle pane to attach the pdf as a snapshot, easily recalled - even when not connected to the Forsyth Library system - and annotated.
