Zotero is comparable to EndNote, a subscription-based citation manager that we have access to for free through UofL. Zotero is easy to use and you can add references quickly with the Zotero Connector browser extension, but there are some limitations. Here are some considerations to help you choose between Zotero and EndNote.
