Zotero: Manage and Cite your Sources

Do you hate typing your bibliography when you’re finally done with your paper?
Do you lose track of the books and articles and websites you’ve used for a paper?
Try Zotero.

Zotero is a free Firefox extension that manages and formats a bibliography from the sources you are using in the course of your research.

It can handle books, articles, video clips, mp3 files, images, web pages and other resources and lets you choose from more than ten different citation styles (APA, MLA, Chicago, e.g.).

You can link Zotero to Microsoft Word and then automatically generate a bibliography from the items you want to cite.
