Embedding the Zotero Web Library?

  • This would be a lovely useful possibility!!!!!!
  • Agree! It would be awesome to embed the Zotero Web Library directly to my research center website!
  • My use case is that I'd like to be able to easily embed a widget on the website of a research consortium which is automatically updated with the latest papers from the consortium members whenever we add them to the public Zotero Group.
  • I've read the links about the python-based approach (which looks cool) but for most users this is going to be beyond what we can devote time and resources to since our primary job is not building apps or websites.

    Since there was a developer post seeking real-world applications for an embedded library, here is mine:

    We catalog all of our oral history collections with Zotero. It's a great tool for this and I've been able to share our digital work with scholars through Zotero, but it's used mostly internally to keep track of things. But I'd like a master list of all of our interviews to be embedded from our Zotero library to our Wordpress-based site, which receives 20,000+ views a year. While we post our interviews on the Wordpress site with transcripts, it's not the best vehicle navigation-wise, although when grouped by collection it is manageable. I would like to have a page, however, with the full catalog for people wanting to see the names of people we've interviewed.
  • I can also add a +1 to this. For our use case (I am a Librarian at a small liberal arts university), we have a series who want to embed their group library on their project site (they are tracking various pre-1900s materials in our stacks). For now, they will have to link, but it would be amazing if we could have it embedded.
