Free open-source bibliographic management software. Zotero captures metadata from webpages and can save a copy of the webpage. It also automatically captures metadata from many sources, such as library catalogs and some databases. If automatic collection does not work, references can be added manually. Zotero will store a copy of the document. Use the library of references you create to automatically make bibliographies and footnotes in many different citation styles. Good for collaborating amongst institutions.
Zotero and Juris-M create a library of citations and attached documents. You can organize your citations into different collections (folders), similar to creating playlists in iTunes. With saved searches, you can create smart collections that automatically fill with relevant materials as you add them to your library.

Zotero – Some Document Types that are Formatted Well
Zotero formats a paper from a conference better than many other reference managers. Often in the reference section of a paper, citation styles format a paper published in conference proceedings differently than an unpublished paper. There are additional fields that are used by Zotero that provide better support for conference papers.
Zotero has a filing date field as well as an issued date. This enables proper formatting of patents in particular citation styles, such as Chicago style that requires both. Some reference managers couldn't format the reference this properly in this case.
