automatically adding the library location


is it possible to automatically record the library location with Zotero? Citavi has a button that allows you to automatically find and add the library location. Is this also possible with Zotero, either through the program or the add-on for Firefox? About the addon you can directly pull the book data from the website, but unfortunately not the location data.

Unfortunately, I can not use Citavi anymore, as I am now working with Linux and am currently looking for a good bibliographic management program. I like Zotero quite well so far.

  • Zotero can only save one library location (=Signatur) compared to Citavi, where you can save several locations.

    Some translators in Zotero will try to automatically save the library location in Zotero while you are saving this item. That would IMO be the best way to achieve this. Which library or library catalogue are you looking at? Also when importing data from Citavi to Zotero this information will be preserved.

    You can also configure the OpenURL resolver such that the Library Lookup will work for your library. If you want to add the library location to a list of entries in Zotero, then you need to go through one-by-one with this lookup and copy and paste the location. There is now functionality in Zotero to update this information automatically in a batch.
