Manage your research and bibliographies

Zotero is a Firefox add-on designed to manage research sources. It ¡s perfect for students, researchers and anyone else who needs to detail, record and share where their information is coming from.

Being an add-on, Zotero is managed entirely from inside your browser. It has some impressive configuration options, many of which won't make any sense until you start to use the add-on. The Zotero window can be toggled from the Zotero icon in the lower right corner of your browser. The icon, location and hotkeys can all be changed.

The Zotero window will open in half your screen, allowing you to add and manage information sources, whether they be journals, books, newspaper articles or other documents. These items are listed and archived, and you'll be able to add notes, highlight, tag and create bibliographies as needed.

Admittedly, it's not easy to get to grips with Zotero, but it's not impossible either. After a while with the application, you should be getting used to it, and a little bit of investigation will reveal all the options. It's not just for academics, either - we can imagine lots of people getting use out of Zotero, as its perfect for anyone who needs to manage lots of related online information.

Give Zotero a little time and it will greatly help your online research.
