Comments from some of those who selected Zotero as one of their top tools

“It may be the best open source tool in the world. It is first and foremost a research database, but it can be a bookmarking tool, too. I have been evangelizing this Bible for years. Why? Because it solves all manner of research problems. Use it.” Terry Elliott, Instructor/Faculty Development, USA, 2020
