Zotero & Tropy

Manage Information using Citation Software/PDF organizers/Image managers

Use citation management/pdf organizing software to save time and energy organizing and citing research materials.  Zotero was designed for humanities and social sciences research. Developed at The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, it is particularly suited for historical sources.

Zotero is a free, open source, web-based tool for managing citations, organizing pdfs, and creating bibliographies.

Tropy is a new beta tool developed to work with images, particularly archival research photographs. Like Zotero, it's free and was developed at The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Tropy allows you to spend more time working with your research photos, and less time searching for them.
