Zotero is a free reference management program similar to RefWorks where you can collect and organize your references and automatically insert citations and create bibliographies. You can also create groups and share your references with others.

Zotero is a standalone application that is used together with a browser extension. You can also download a plugin program to insert your references into Word and Libre Office.
