Zotero is a reference manager program. It exists either as an add-on
for the Firefox web browser, a separate program, or both. It allows researchers
to save references from library catalogs, research databases
and other websites with a single click. It runs constantly as a plugin in
the web browser, which has perhaps become our most essential research
tool, so it is always available. It collects saved citations into a personal
“library,” making them easy to organize and search for later use. A
few clicks can turn references in the Zotero library into a bibliography
in well over a thousand bibliographic styles. It automatically backs up
citations and files to the cloud, making the library accessible from any
computer but fully functional offline too.
