Zotero is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension "that helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects), and lets you share the results of your research in a variety of ways".
You can enter your bibliographic records by hand, but you can also have Zotero extract them directly from online. It works with most library OPACs, with Google Scholar, and with some of the major article databases like ProQuest and JSTOR.
Zotero is useful to anyone who uses the Internet for research and needs a simple way to organize references. By emphasizing accurate citations and automating the process, Zotero helps students learn and adopt proper practices.
