Embedding the Zotero Web Library?

The Zotero Web Library is really excellent. It would be fantastic if it could also be embedded in one's website e.g. via an iframe. Currently that is not possible because of a "x-frame-options: sameorigin" header.

Alternatively, maybe Zotero could provide a special kind of embed URL, similar to the way YouTube provides a certain URL for embedded videos.

I think this would an advantage for Zotero as it would widen to exposure to various website visitors who could then click on the Zotero logo and get to the Zotero website.
  • Yes, please!!! Tungsten84 stated this much more nicely that I would have. I thought I was blind or stupid because I couldn't believe that Zotero doesn't provide a bibliography or collection embed code. I tried using BibBase and was successful to a point, but now it refuses to connect to my Zotero collections. And, the BibBase embed code "breaks" LibGuide pages.
  • I would really love this!!!! It is clearly and nicely stated. I am looking for a way of doing this in a Drupal site and I have not found any current good and stable solution. Many thanks!
  • I agree with this as an option - the Web Library is beautifully designed and much better than other workarounds. Currently, it works to open the library in another webpage (which I am reasonably happy with, better than dealing with BibBase), but you need to add a webpage to make it clear what people are linking to so it's not quite as intuitive it can be.
  • Another vote for this!!
  • I was checking to see if this had been addressed in the forums. Glad I'm not alone in looking for this to be changed so we can embed libraries!
  • Plus one for this. Zotero could be an excellent way to keep a knowledge base sync'd for a project, etc.
  • Please consider this!
  • Same, I vote for this too, please! I'll just use Zotero much more!!
  • This would really make my life a lot easier. BibBase just refuses to embed my entire library.
  • This would definitely be great. I understand this might increase the load on Zotero Web Library's servers, but maybe it could be added as a perk for paid plans?
