Research Tool: Zotero
Zotero - An open source research organizer and citation generating tool. Create an account and keep all your research organized in one place.
Zbib - Use zbib if you want to use Zotero without signing in as a quick citation generator. Zbib.org is similar to easybib because you can copy and paste websites or use ISBN numbers from books and the application will automatically generate a citation.
Important: Even when you use a citation generator that automatically retrieves information from a website it is important to check your citation for accuracy. Automatic generators often miss important information such as author and publication date.
Other Research Tools
Crossref - Use Crossref to get a DOI (Digital Object Identifier)- a static address to a digital object (instead of a website). Crossref links citations from online academic journals.
LucidChart - Use Lucidchart templates to organize your research such as making mind maps and outlining thinking. Sign up for the free education account for access to more free templates.
