I'd give a thumbs up for Zotero too.

Two others you might also look at - fee-based CiteStack is a law-focused
citation manager, but not tied to a publisher.
http://www.citestack.com/overview.html  CiteULike is another STEM-oriented
citation tool, like Mendeley/Qiqqa and cloud-based:
http://www.citeulike.org/  It's also unaffiliated, and free.  FWIW, I did a
quick and dirty review of Qiqqa in 2011 soon after it came out; I think it
could be pretty easily manipulated to track useful info about cases, etc. (

But I think you're right that citation management may not stick if the
curriculum doesn't reinforce it.  I guess some students may have something
- liker Evernote or OneNote - that they're already doing "research
management" with, even if it's essentially a personal Pinterest of cases,
journals, etc., they find.

Best, David.
