Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a citation management system for collecting, organizing, sharing, and citing sources. It's easy to use, connects with your web browser, and it's free!
Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes, and images to your citations, organize them into collections, create bibliographies, share citations, and to add them to documents while you write.
