Zotero

Posted on: May 7, 2007

I just went and installed Zotero, a firefox extension perfect for assignments and things like that. I love it when I stumble upon things that are useful like that!

One of the great things I love about firefox, there again. It goes so nicely down the bottom of my screen- unobtrusively sitting there until I need it! Similar to Google Notebook, which I also just got.

So the way it works is it recognises if you’re on a page that you would reference and a little icon appears in the URL. You can click it and it will add it to your library. Then at a later date, when you’re online or offline (who the hell is ever offline?) you can organise it into categories. You can add tags, notes, links, say what it’s similar too. It’s really handy.

If it doesn’t recognise that you might want to reference something then you can always add it in manually.

So I thought that this was a great tool for doing assignments, and I think I would use it even for blogging- a great way to reference things properly. Should bloggers take this into consideration more?
