The Center sponsors dozens of history projects and offer free tools and resources for historians.

One of the most exciting projects is the development of Zotero, a free Firefox extension supports researchers in collecting, managing, and citing research sources. Zotero has been named one of the best free software applications of 2008, and just won Northwestern Universities’ Citefest in direct competition with Refworks, Endnote and CiteULike.
