The Internet Archive and the Zotero Project propose a collaborative project to build a structured archival and access environment for the aggregated materials of thousands of scholars. The project would offer a critical back-end extension to the Zotero research platform to provide permanent archiving and personalized file and project materials management. The platform would create a "Zotero Commons"--publicly shared items from the community of scholars--as well as a more circumscribed 'group'…

Through initiatives such as optional fee-based cloud storage through the recently formed Corporation for Digital Scholarship, a non-profit established to underwrite Zotero’s continuing
costs, the project has made major progress with respect to sustainability within the bounds of existing grant funding. Nonetheless, a critical challenge to Zotero’s long-term sustainability remains its exclusive tethering to the Firefox browser. We therefore propose a staged project to decouple Zotero from…
