Free tools for organizing your research docs

We recently learned of two terrific FREE tools to help scholars at every level organize the research materials spread all over their computers into a 24/7 library.  Both allow you to create a “cloud” of personalized resources  that you can log in to from anywhere:

  • Zotero plugs into Firefox and lets you ” collect, manage and share your research sources”
  • Mendeley is also a plug-in, and has the added bonus of searching your harddrive for all PDFs, compiling them, and letting you search/organize/filter them.  You can tag websites, citations and documents and add them to your “cloud” library.

If you try these resources, let us know how you fare!
