  15. 15. Overload! Do you still organize your research sources in big piles of paper or folders? Are your students overwhelmed by how to organize and cite their sources?
  16. 16. It’s manageable Free reference management software can help you and your students manage references easily, no matter the source format.
  17. 17. Zotero to the rescue | zotero.org
  18. 18. Save & archive Saves copies of articles and web pages to  easily archive information.  Look for context-sensitive icon in web address bar.  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’llhave an archived copy of the page in most cases, so no fears about broken links later! (Or fewer fears, anyway...)
  19. 19. Organize Drag-and-drop, iTunes-like interface allows  easy organization of saved items in folders (collections).
  20. 20. 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.
  21. 21. 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.
  22. 22. Cite! Drag and drop items into Word, blogging  windows, and other applications to easily create citations in the style you specify. Or easily turn selected items into a  bibliography:
  23. 23. Considerations Catalogs, databases, etc., need to be  compatible with Zotero to allow it to harvest full metadata (many already are!). 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). 

  25. 25. Unlike Zotero, EndNote Web is fully web-based: no installation required.
  26. 26. Grab items from any database Note: Use “RefMan RIS” filter to import RIS files. How-to guide: http://library.boisestate.edu/reference/endnote_web.pdf
  27. 27. Student friendly: BibMe.org
  28. 28. Easy as pie (but requires handling)  Terrific for books, websites (though citation details should be reviewed).  Will automatically locate information and create citation.  Bibliographies can be formatted in preferred style and downloaded into Word.
  29. 29. Not as great for articles Most must be  entered manually, by putting info in specified fields. Citations are  generated from information entered.
