Zotero – an academic bookmarking tool

I went to visit an Academic Skills Tutor today who introduced me to Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh].

In it’s simplest form Zotero is a bookmarking tool that has been specifically designed for academic use, therefore the free web based software can be used as an aid to help students collect, organize, cite, and share research sources. As their website explains ‘Zotero collects all your research in a single, searchable interface. You can add PDFs, images, audio and video files, snapshots of web pages, and really anything else. Zotero automatically indexes the full-text content of your library, enabling you to find exactly what you’re looking for with just a few keystrokes.’

I have only just started to use the software but it certainly seems like it will be a useful addition to the assistance technology that I am using for the #mscmmel.
