zotero.org. A bibliographic manager that lives in your web browser. What does that mean? With a single click, you can grab all the relevant citation information from a newspaper article, academic database, google book, or just plain website — and for many databases, you can have Zotero automatically download a local pdf, too, so you’ll no longer need an internet connection to read it. Then, when you’re ready to cite, it’s as simple as drag-and-drop into any program or field that accepts text entry. There’s more to say, about tags and searching and in-text citations, but I’ll stop here to conclude as follows: this program will change your life. Watch the short demo video at http://www.zotero.org/support/quick_start_guide. You won’t regret it.
