Zotero - managing research sources

Zotero is an easy-to-use tool that helps to gather, organize, and analyse research sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects). It works as a reference manager software, allowing to store author, title, and publication fields and to export that information as formatted references, but also integrates some more social features like the ability to interact, tag and share the results of the performed researches in a variety of ways.
Zotero is an extension to Firefox, so it can sense when users are viewing a book, article, or other object through the browser, and —on many major research and library sites—find and automatically save the full reference information for the item in the correct fields. For the same reason, it can effortlessly transmit information to, and receive information from, other web services and applications. It can also communicate with software running on your computer (such as Microsoft Word) and be used offline (e.g., on a plane, in an archive without WiFi).
Zotero's Unicode support allows you to import, store, and cite items in any language. You can change the language of Zotero, and of the citations and bibliographies created by Zotero. Finally, there is an experimental multilingual version of Zotero, which supports storage of item metadata in more than one language (transliterations and translations).
Documentation is completely available in English and most of the pages are also translated in many other languages.

BibMe

BibMe is a free automated citation creator and bibliography generator. It uses external databases to fill citation information: after that it compiles the bibliography and formats references following the guidelines specified by the most recent editions of each style guide. It is also possible to enter citations manually. A citation guided is also provided to students for them to learn about style guidelines for citing references.
BibMe provides with the possibility to save as many bibliographies as wanted and to access and edit them on the Web at any time. Bibliographies can be shared and downloaded in a .rtf file. It is also possible to assign categories and tags to individual citations in order to find them easily and filter citations across all compiled bibliographies.
It started in January 2007 as a student project with the aim to avoid passing hours on formatting bibliographies, thus saving time, better served working on the paper.

At present the web site is somewhat overloaded with advertisement and it may be less attractive to use with students.
