This quarter I decided to start using Zotero at full force..but at the same time keep my own way to keep things in order. I noticed as I started using Zotero some of the options for citation weren’t working correctly. There wasn’t just an easy way to pull off the info without printing out a record of it (if there is someone share!). I began using the notes option to just add the bibliography section. Another service I use to help with MLA citation is EasyBib. This is a great site that even if it doesn’t find all citation information it provides easy tips on how to acquire it. Plus, it maintains your bibliography live. Oh! Another gem is the WorldCat website, which features a “build a bibliography” section which can be very helpful! You can put in any book (and some journals too) and it will provide you with most used citation guidelines.
I’ve started highlighting PDFs with information that pertains to my topic and thinking ahead of what sources I can use later on for my complete thesis. Zotero does provide an easy way to keep folders and files organized. Which is an advantage. I have been looking at EndNote to see if that would be a better replacement. Suggestions?
