Zotera - browser tool for researchers

Mozilla (who produces, among other things, the open source Firefox web browser) is running a promotion for "4 Tools for Back to School."

Among them is the browser extension Zotero, which is used to collect, manage and cite on-line research resources.  It is a product of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, where Youngest Son is a Junior Computer Science major. Kudos to the team that produced it and congratulations for the deserved recognition - it is a very slick tool. Read more about Zotero at the Zotero site.

If you've never visited the Center for History and New Media website, check it out - Zotero is but one of many useful tools to be found there for historians, educators and scholars.
