Reference Management Applications


Zotero is a free reference management application. It is open-source, and therefore cannot be acquired by a company. 

Zotero allows you to: 

  • Store and organise your references 
  • Insert references and bibliographies into a word processor document
  • Use your computer’s chosen PDF viewer to access PDFs. 
  • Collaborate by sharing libraries

Zotero is a desktop product that can be used in conjunction with a login. It has an adjunct product: Zotero Connector. This is a browser extension that allows you to capture citation information from websites, including bibliographic databases. 

Zotero is easy to use and is supported by informative help pages and forums.
