Zotero (and Quotepad)

| February 1, 2012 | 0 Comments 

Zotero collects all your research in a single, searchable interface. You can add PDFs, images, audio and video files, snapshots of web pages, and really anything else. Zotero automatically indexes the full-text content of your library, enabling you to find exactly what you’re looking for with just a few keystrokes.

Zotero is an extension for the Firefox web-browser. It runs in its own pane within Firefox, separately from web pages.

Zotero is, at the most basic level, a citation manager. It is designed to store, manage, and cite bibliographic references, such as books and articles. In Zotero, each of these references constitutes an item.

Every item contains different metadata, depending on what type it is. Items can be everything from books, articles, and documents to web pages, artwork, films, sound recordings, an so much more.

You might want to also try Quotepad. (A gem we have mentioned before but is one of great value for anyone who is studying.

Please let us know how you get on with either of these, if you try them.
