Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a free, open-source citation-management service that helps students and researchers:
Zotero is available in two different forms that both work with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems: Zotero for Firefox and Zotero Standalone.
You can install both Zotero for Firefox and Zotero Standalone on the same computer. Caution: If you have the Zotero pane open in Firefox and then try to open Zotero Standalone you will get a message warning you that two separate Zotero applications are trying to access the same database. Close out of the Zotero for Firefox pane (although you do not have to quit Firefox) and then try opening Zotero Standalone again.
Warning: Citation managers and formatters are provided for your convenience only. Please use them with caution. They are not foolproof and do not guarantee correct results. Be sure to review the results to check for formatting, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, required elements, etc. for the citation style you are using.
Consult the appropriate official style manual for the definitive answer to your citation questions. Some examples of citations in APA, MLA and Turabian styles are available in the Library's Citing References guides. For additional assistance, please contact the library reference desk in person, by phone at (262) 472-1032 or by Ask a Librarian email/chat.
