What is Library Lookup?

  • Zotero's Library Lookup feature will search to see if we have access to one of your saved citations in our University of Memphis library collections.
  • If the source is not in our collection, Library Lookup will automatically redirect you to interlibrary loan to get a copy.
  • Library Lookup only works in the Zotero desktop app.
