Citation management software can be a great help in organizing and citing your legal research findings. A number of citation software products are available to choose from, but not all support Bluebook styles for legal citation. Zotero (http://www.zotero.com) is one that does, though special files for Bluebook styles must be downloaded and installed separately from the Zotero program. Zotero also has a plug-in for use with Microsoft Word and other word processing programs and browser extensions to speed up citation of many Internet materials.

Caution: Citation management software is a great time-saver and organizing tool, but output is less than perfect. Proofread carefully!
