Simpler Citations Kim Leeder
Overload! Are you & your patrons overwhelmed by how to organize and cite sources? Librarians College students High school students Independent researchers Etc.!
It’s manageable Don’t panic! You can manage references using special (free) online citation management software.
Zotero to the rescue!
Save & archive Saves copies of articles and web pages to easily archive information. In many cases Zotero saves the full details of the item - including author, title, publication details - that will be needed to cite it later. These details may easily be edited for accuracy, or filled in where necessary. You’ll have an archived copy of the page in most cases, so no fears about broken links later! (Or fewer fears, anyway...)
Organize Drag-and-drop, iTunes-like interface allows easy organization of saved items in folders (collections).
Describe Add notes and/or tags to saved items. Zotero automatically assigns tags that it identifies from item metadata, such as library catalog subject headings. Notes can be any free-form text about an item.
Search Many search options make it easy to locate saved items later. Zotero searches all fields of an item, including full-text, unless otherwise directed.
Cite! Drag and drop items into Word, blogging windows, and other applications to easily create citations in the style you specify in “Preferences.” Or: export your entire library as a bibliography with additional plug-ins for MS Word and Open Office.
Considerations Catalogs, databases, etc., need to be compatible with Zotero to allow it to harvest full metadata (many already are, including ProQuest!). Must be downloaded and installed as a Firefox add-on. Does not always identify the permanent URL for an item; these must be added manually in some cases. No sharing options (yet).

It couldn’t get easier than this!
Terrific for books, websites (though they should be reviewed, esp. websites).
Will automatically locate information and create citation.
Not as great for articles Most must be entered manually, by putting info in specified fields. Citations are generated from information entered.
There are more tools like this BibSonomy, based on delicious but focused on sharing research links CiteULike Connotea, science oriented Mendeley Web And many more… see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_reference_management_software Choose the one you like best!
