Use ZoteroBib for Short-term Projects

Zotero is an excellent tool for researchers pursuing a major project or who expect to be engaged in research in the future. If you’re working on a smaller or one-time project, you may prefer to use ZoteroBib, a free, web-based tool by the creators of Zotero that lets you input citation data from a URL, ISBN, PMID, or doi number and generate both a bibliography and in-text citations.
