Creating a profile allows you to:

- View your library from different computers.
- Share your citations with a group. You can create a group using the Groups icon () in Zotero.
- Save searches and add results to your personal library automatically. Right click on My Library in Zotero and select "New Saved Search." The search will create a folder and update it when new items are added to your library that match the search criteria. This is a useful way to see when someone in your group added a new item.
