Zotero and note-taking

Posted by – 24/06/2012

I was looking for an excuse to try Zotero and the perfect opportunity appeared when I got a whole lot of references to group for a month of Magnetic Ressonance studies I am currently taking. I was also pleased to notice it is packaged to Debian.

I am used to note-taking software. Back when I used a Palm m130 (and a Treo 650), I managed a lot of Memos I eventually migrated to Note-Everything in my current Android phone. Zotero, unfortunatelly, is not interfaceable with my phone (or I was still unable to figure out how to do so), but it’s powerful in managing references… beyond simple note-taking.

Is anyone using Zotero in a more ambitious way? I’ve read about people using it to keep large researchs to support fiction and non-fiction book-writing… I also watched some YouTube videos on it. As far as I went with it, Zotero might become an important piece in my toolbox wrt reference keeping, so I was just trying to figure out how many other niches it can fill…
