Have you heard of Zotero (pronounced zoh-TAIR-oh)? It is an open-source tool used to organize research and generate in-text citations, footnotes, and bibliographies. A project of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, Zotero was a welcome addition to the field of reference management software as it capitalized on Web 2.0 technology.

You may find yourself asking, “Great, so how can this help me?” Well, after completing a paper, you no longer have to type out citations, remember which punctuation marks to use, track down incomplete references, or change repeat citations to Ibid (if following The Chicago Manual of Style). Zotero allows you to store citations from all of your papers, so it’s easy to go back—even years later—and find an article that you cited.
