Zotero

A tool to collect, organise, cite, and share articles, papers or websites on one platform. It accepts a wider variety of forms of information (websites, papers, news articles, videos, audios, etc.) to store and organise. It is also linked to the search engine of your internet browser so that the storing process is very easy and fast. It needs to be installed for use and can be viewed without having Internet access.

Evaluation: A useful tool for researching information on the Internet, storing and organising the results. A time-saver for teachers to organise teaching materials, and for students to organise materials for projects.The sharing feature may facilitate collaborative research. Useful for researchers as a citation tool. A good tutorial or introduction needed before use. Advanced IT skills required.
 
Cost: Free with registration + Paid premium plans
