Zotero is a free, open source, easy-to-use Firefox plug-in that helps you collect, manage, cite, and share your citations.

Zotero works on all three major operating systems: PC, Mac, and Linux. It works best with the Firefox browser, but you can download and install plug-ins for the Chrome and Safari browsers as well.
