Zotero is a freely available reference management and writing tool that makes capturing citations easy. It has a browser plugin that works in Chrome, Firefox or Safari, and with one click you can add a journal article, Web page, video, or many other resource types to your library.
One of Zotero's strengths is that it is uncomplicated to us, making collaborative projects, especially with people at other institutions, relatively simple via Google Docs.
You will never have to worry about losing your library of citations because everything is backed up to the cloud. Syncing to the Web version of Zotero allows you to access your library from any computer with Internet access. If you run out of Zotero's free storage, additional storage can be purchased for only $20 a year.
More details about Zotero's different features, training, and tips for getting started, can be found in our Zotero Guide.
