About this page...
5/2/2013 - lost your Zotero icon in Firefox? Look here
11/30/2012: Big News! The Zotero bookmarklet is now out of beta! This can be used to capture bibliographic data (and in some cases even article PDFs) using *any* browser (including IE and Safari), the iPad and iPhone, and Android smartphones. Find more info at this ProfHacker article and get the bookmarklet here (or see my how-to tab here). Also, you can now get a formatted citation from your online library at zotero.org for one or more items, and export items in multiple reference management program formats.
Zotero is a free, open source alternative to reference manager systems such as EndNote and RefWorks. Zotero allows you to easily save webpages and articles found in library subscription databases such as Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, JSTOR, and PubMed, as well as bibliographic details, PDFs or other files, comments/notes, and indexing terms. Saved PDFs are searchable. When you are ready to write, you can use Zotero to integrate your references into your work in many citation styles using MS Word or OpenOffice. References can be backed up and shared between computers and even with other people over the Web. Zotero works with the Firefox, Chrome, and Safari browsers (the last two via a standalone program); if you are using another browser (i.e. IE, your iPad, or an Android tablet browser) items can be added to your online library via a bookmarklet.
Update 11/28/2012 - Sometime in the future Zotero users will be able to edit citation styles themselves (this will make fixing citations and working with variant styles much easier). The process is being developed by Columbia University and Zotero frenemy Mendelay - find out more here and here, or test the beta version here (note: installing it will be different...)
(If you want to make your own [WSU] WorldCat searchbox or widget to place on a webpage, Facebook profile, etc., look here. This one shows items from a WSU WorldCat keyword search I created (you can erase the Zotero in the search box and type in your own search), but you can also create list widgets or undetermined keyword search widgets.)
