Are you puzzled with how you'll organize your citations?
Creating your bibliography seems to be a burden for you?
Are you tired of multiple source citations?a


We suggest you become familiar with Zotero.


Zotero ( is a free and open source reference management software that allows you to:

  • collect information from the resources you use
  • organize resources into collections
  • format citations and create bibliography
  • synchronize everything between your online account and any computer that you have it installed on*

It is a tool that recognizes automatically the articles, websites, images, PDFs and much more; helps
you import and archive them in folders in your own Zotero library and then easily add the citations to
your Word document. It works for any article found in databases, such as Academic Search Premier,
books from Amazon, etc, and any news websites.
