Reference management
« on: August 25, 2009, 09:05:49 PM »
Apparently I do this in an old-fashioned way, ie typing out every time I reference something.  I was recently informed of reference management software.  Do many here use such software, or do others, like me, simply do everything manually?

I like Zotero.  It's free, open source, and works out of the box.

Industry standards are usually EndNote or RefWorks.  Both for pay, unless your university has a subscription.
