Books on Zotero
Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a citation management software that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It is downloaded as a desktop application that connects with a browser plug-in.
Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies.
It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.
