What Zotero Does
Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a Firefox addon that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use, lives in your web browser where you do your work, and best of all it's free. Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies.
It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.
You have access to the online version of EndNote, EndNote Web, a bibliographic management tool. Use EndNote Web to help you site resources and build collections of citations for bibliographies or other purposes. Sign up for an EndNote Web account while you are on campus, then you can use it anywhere.
