The Library recommends using Zotero for collecting, organizing and citing your research sources. Zotero works best with Firefox but stand alone versions also exist on the Mac for Chrome and Safari.
We recommend using the current version as it allows you to sync your account so you can access your citations from another computer. Also, with this version you can create a profile.
What is Zotero?
Zotero is useful for quickly documenting your research from the library catalogue, article databases, websites, blogs, images, videos, PDFs and really anything else . The power of Zotero is to link your documented research sources with the work that you do in Microsoft Word or Open Office.
This short video shows some of the things that Zotero can do.
