Zotero is a tool designed to help you gather, manage and share information about books, articles, web pages and other digital objects which you are using in your research, and to generate citations and bibliographies.
Zotero is a Mozilla browser plugin. You can choose to gather your data on your hard drive (if you are working mainly from your laptop), or on a flash drive or a network (if you frequently access your data at multiple workstations).
Zotero is free!
