“The New Standalone Zotero
All genealogists need a good citation manager to to keep track of all the papers they have read and accumulated. For years, the most popular citation manger has been Zotero. In fact, I recently recorded a podcast with Connie Reik in which she describe some of Zotero's awesome capabilities. (You can listen to our conversation at http://goo.gl/bgO7l.)
Standalone Zotero Alpha for Windows, Mac and Linux is now available as an alpha release.
All versions of Zotero remain available free of charge.”
