Zotero is an easy-to-use yet powerful research tool that helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects), and lets you share the results of your research in a variety of ways. An extension to the popular open-source web browser Firefox, Zotero includes the best parts of older reference manager software (like EndNote)—the ability to store author, title, and publication fields and to export that information as formatted references—and the best parts of modern software and web applications (like iTunes and del.icio.us), such as the ability to interact, tag, and search in advanced ways.
It lives in the web browser, it can effortlessly transmit information to, and receive information from, other web services and applications; since it runs on one’s personal computer, it can also communicate with software running there (such as Microsoft Word). And it can be used offline as well (e.g., on a plane, in an archive without WiFi).

Herbert Goodkind spent a portion of his youth in an unassuming house in Columbia’s first suburb which has been nationally recognized for bridging the gaps across lines of race, religion, class and culture. This site in Historic Waverly, a National Register for Historic Places District, has proved to connect diverse lives with roots to Historically Black colleges, a Jewish synagogue, and famous musicians. This story of this private residence known as the Visanska-Starks House, and its hidden carriage house will be featured on the “Hidden Hideout” episode of HGTV’s “If Walls Could Talk”. The episode will air nationally on Monday, April 28, 2008 at 6:00 PM ET/PT.

Check out Opera Glass!
If you can't remember a particular aria from Gounod's "Faust" or a certain detail from the song contest at Wartburg, this site dedicated to opera may be just the ticket. Created and maintained by Rick Bogart, a research scientist at Stanford, the site provides access to libretti, source texts, performance histories, synopses, discographies, and so on.
The site also contains an opera information directory, which features an opera composer index containing 4800 entries. Moving on, those who might be new to the wonders of opera will appreciate the "Opera For Everyone" CD's, which are offered here at no charge. Visitors can use the music here to learn about four classic operas, including "La Traviata" and "Madama Butterfly". The site is rounded out by a list of operas requiring six or fewer singers and a calendar of operatic commemorations.
