I was totally impressed with an addon to Firefox called Zotero. It makes the Web more useful and fits perfectly into the kinds of things that will bring us to Web 3.0. To get there, they say that web browsers need to change. So, now, right from your Firefox browser Zotero can help you:
- Annotate and organize research results, including video.
- Save information about a reference, including author, title, and other publication information.
- Create libraries and save searches
- Attach files, links, notes, and pdfs to records.
- Store a screenshot of a web page.
- Export information as formatted citations in word processing programs (Word, Google Docs).
- Tag and sort records and perform advanced searches.
- View records in personal collection when offline.
- Cite records in any language.
It is really pretty amazing. If you use the web for research and you use FireFox or Flock (like I do) …you need this software. Just like they say on their website: “Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources. It lives right where you do your work — in the web browser itself.” www.zotero.org It even integrates with MSWord.
