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!
