Zotero on Multiple Computers

Since Zotero is installed software, it lives on a particular machine.  If you routinely use multiple computers, you will probably want to sign up for a Zotero account. This will allow you to sync your Zotero library across computers, or to view your library directly on the Zotero website. You can set your Zotero client to sync automatically in the preferences panel under "Sync".
