[Help] Add download sources for the "Find Available PDF" option


Long story short, i've essentially hit the ground running using Zotero, and i need to add sciencedirect and other libraries that my university credentials give me access to (via VPN). As much as i tried, i couldn't find how to do that in the documentation. Could somebody please steer me in the right direction?

Thank you for your consideration.
  • You don't really need to do anything for most of these. Just connect to your VPN, then use the Find Available PDF function. Zotero will use the DOI and URL fields to look for the PDF at those locations and via Unpaywall. If you have access to the PDF on those pages, Zotero will find it. Some sites currently don't work with the function because of how the PDF is generated, but Zotero is working on that: https://github.com/zotero/zotero/issues/1596
  • Thank you for your support!

    I'm happy to be a member of the Zotero community!
