Adding SBL Style to Zotero

Some citation styles come pre-installed in Zotero, like Chicago, APA, and MLA. However, many other styles can be added, including Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), which many TEDS students are required to follow.

To install the SBL style template, in the Zotero App, go to Edit > Preferences, and then click on the "Cite" icon.

Click on the "Get available styles..." link.

Zotero Preferences

In the new screen that pops up, begin to type "Society of Biblical Literature" into the search box. The style name will automatically appear.
