I’m using Zotero to organize my sources and notes. There are reasonable criticisms, but I say Zotero rocks. So does Scott McLemee at Inside Higher Ed. My basic reasons for Zotero love:

  1. It’s free.
  2. It’s a Firefox extension.
  3. It doesn’t crash my computer (as EndNote does).
  4. It doesn’t lock my bibs up in proprietary formats (as EndNote does).

Now if it just had a sidebar (when so many of us have widescreens, why do developers not think of putting those controls at the side instead of hogging up page space at the bottom or the top à la the Microsoft Office ribbon?)….

I may add some sources here… or I may just upgrade Zotero and check out its save-to-server feature (yum… I’m going downloading right now!).

In the meantime, if you’re curious about sources, drop me a line via the comment section. Tell me what you need and I’ll take heed and lead you in the right direction for bibliographic selections….
