Reference Management Tools: Zotero and Juris-M

Are you planning to complete an upper level writing requirement or other significant research project during the upcoming semester? You may be interested in software to help manage your research and citations. Zotero is a free program that uses a browser extension to capture citation information and full-text files from sources on the web. The program enables you to organize your research by tagging, creating collections, and  automatically performing saved searches. Zotero can also sync your data across devices, and create citations and bibliographies.

Juris-M is a version of Zotero geared specifically for legal research. It also offers collection, organization, citation, and syncing functions. Check out this tutorial for more information.
