Zotero

Zotero is a Firefox addon that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's free and easy to use.

Organizing Your Library

At the top left of your Zotero library, there is a folder button with a green plus sign. Click this to create a new "collection."

Collections -- like file folders on your computer -- organize your references.

A Zotero reference can be in more than one collection at a time. Example: a book on the Civil War could be filed in your "Civil War" collection, your "Georgia History" collection and your "19th Century America" collection without having to make three copies of the reference.
