The UCL Computers all have Zotero. You can find this by typing in Zotero in the 'Search Windows' box. You will also see that there is a special version of MSWord for Zotero which has the pre-installed word plugin for Zotero which will allow you to both save your references in Zotero and use the 'Write and Cite' option.

Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is an open source referencing package. Zotero collects, manages and allows you to cite references. In other words, Zotero will help you get organised, save time, collaborate - all for the price of £0 (unless you want to purchase space on their server which we do not recommend). You can also attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies.
It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.
