ZOTERO, Ultimate Research Tool for Students

As students we have to do lot of research on various subjects. when we go researching stuff in the Internet, sometimes it can be very difficult to keep up with the information we come across and keep them organized. Before I came across this wonderful tool Zotero what I did was save all important  web pages, PDF documents, etc... in one folder and later open one by one and read them. When I'm writing a report on something this opening one by one and reading it can be really annoying.

But with Zotero all this can be done very easily. This Firefox extension can keep everything very organized. Zotero can save files, PDFs, images, links, and snapshots of web pages along with the citation.

Here are some of the other features that Zotero has to offer:

  • Automatic capture of citation information from web pages
  • Storage of PDFs, files, images, links, and whole web pages
  • Flexible notetaking with autosave
  • Fast, as-you-type search through your materials
  • Playlist-like library organization, including saved searches (smart collections) and tags
  • Platform for new forms of digital research that can be extended with other web tools and services
  • Runs right in your web browser
  • Formatted citation export (style list to grow rapidly)
  • Free and open source
  • Shared collections
  • Remote library backup
  • Integration with Microsoft Word and other word processors
  • Access your library from anywhere via the web
