When you're doing research for an assignment or essay, you will find a variety of sources that you will use in your work, but how do you keep track of them all? Zotero is a free software tool for managing your references that allows you to collect and organise them and quickly & easily create in-text citations and reference lists. You can create different folders to store sources that you use in different pieces of work.

Zotero is similar to Mendeley. It might not have as good a user interface as Mendeley, but can be used, unlike Mendeley without having to create an account,

You don't have to use referencing software, but if you're comfortable using apps, why not check out Zotero?
