Citation Manager – Zotero Now Available as Stand-Alone (Zotero Everywhere)
Zotero is now available (in Beta) as a stand-alone citation management tool. From the Pace Law Library blog:
“Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. It lives right where you do your work—in the web browser itself.”
Many law librarians use and recommend Zotero as one of the few tools that play nice (or at least somewhat nice) with Bluebook. More information and download from Zotero here.
When working on a paper or brief with many footnotes and citations, starting early with citation management is preferred to “fixing” citations at the end. Using a tool like Zotero can help.
