Creating a Group

Groups can be created in two ways: Click on New Group icon next to the New Collection icon in the top left corner in the Zotero Firefox add-on OR Click on the Create New Group button located on the Groups tab page on the Zotero Website

Group Types

Private Groups -- private collaboration among members without a public presence on the Zotero website. Only users who are members of a Group are able to see the Group's site.

Public with Closed Membership -- Groups a closed-group environment with a public presence. This provides the group a method of sharing their bibliographies publically with other Zotero users, but joining the group remains invitation only.

Public with Open Membership -- Groups are open to other Zotero users and anyone can join the group.
