Zotero-Firefox Web Browser Add On


Tired of referring to the APA, Chicago/Turabian, and MLA style manuals to create your citations for your term paper projects?  Give Zotero a try.

With Zotero, you can easily create the citation needed for you papers. Zotero lets you build personal reference libraries for your various research projects from online catalogs, online periodical databases, commercial booksellers and regular web pages. It “senses” what type of research resource you are using like a book, article, video, etc. and then gathers all the bibliographic information for you in one convent location.  Zotero also formats the bibliographic information according to your style manual preference. You can also add notes to build an annotated bibliography. Bibliographies can then be exported to a word processor, html, or other formats. The site to download and install Zotero is http://www.zotero.org.  Zotero is only available for FireFox 2 and greater.  It is not compatible with Internet Explorer, Safari, or Chrome.  Download it Here.
