, citation management
Zotero allows users to bookmark and save content (PDFs, images, audio and video files, snapshots of web pages, etc.) by automatically pulling in metadata stored on websites. Users can then search, tag and annotate any entry in their library.
Zotero is primarily available as a Firefox plug-in, but is now also available in a stand-alone version with connectors to other browsers.
Zotero also allows students to automatically create Works Cited pages by drawing on the sources used in a document.
