Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Keep all of your online and offline citations and notes nicely organized, just allow yourself some extra time to get the hang of this Firefox add-on.

Zotero's user interface can be activated by either a hot-key combo or by clicking on the status-bar icon. A three-paned screen takes up half of your browser screen, but you can choose to display it under your browser window or expand it to take up the entire screen. We spent some time trying to figure out the program; it's not immediately intuitive. You can definitely cut down your learning curve by taking advantage of the tutorial. Once we got going, we were quickly adding entire pages, specific text, and taking snapshots of Web material to organize into collections. We were able to add notes and even attach Word and Excel documents to specific items in the collection folders. The highlighter tool is a handy addition for noting key sections in saved Web pages. You also can add notes on the side of the page, much as you would with hard-copy research.

This free tool is perfect for students and teachers, but also for anyone looking to keep track of important information found on the Web.
