When you are in an Ebsco database, select the articles you wish to export to Zotero. Click the folder view link on the right hand side of the screen


On the following page, you will be brought to a list of articles that you have selected. Select the articles that you would like to export and then click the Export button located on the right hand side of the page.


On the next page, click "Direct Export in RIS Format (e.g. CITAVI, EasyBib, EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager, Zotero)" and then click the save button. The items will then be downloaded to your downloads file.

To import the records to your Zotero library:

Open Zotero. Click file from the menu, and then import. Follow the on-screen instructions. A video has been created demonstrating this process.
