As you amass resources for your reserach, you might be looking for a way to simply manage the citation information and to organize and manage all of the PDFs you've downloaded. Zotero won't read the article for you, but it'll help keep you on track and make citing a breeze! 

Zotero is a citation management software that acts as a database for all of your bibliographic information, notes, and attachments. It provides a plugin for your web browser to quickly and simply download bibliographic information from items and a plugin for Microsoft Word and Google Docs to easily add citations to your document as you write. 

Zotfile is a PDF management add-on that expands Zotero's capabilities to help you better keep track of your PDFs across devises or to extend your storage space. You can quickly export your notes from a PDF into Zotero, rename files, save files to a different cloud service, and more. 

Before the workshop, please download Zotero and the appropriate Zotero plugin for your web browser at
