Citelighter is a Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome add-on designed for a community of students in order to help them find valuable content, automatically cite sources, and much more.
In short, the Citelighter research tool provides its users an organizational framework for writing their papers.
Here are the situations when using Citelighter is really advisable: when you capture a citation online. In this case Citelighter automatically finds a large majority of the bibliographical information from the website and leverages the community to help us fill in any remaining info that users are not normally able to pull out quickly.
Once you add the additional information for a citation, it will be stored in the developer's database and anyone else who visits the same website in the future will be able to capture all of the bibliographical data automatically.
So think of it as a tool that is capable of doing small favors to the entire Citelighter community. And as a thank you, you will receive an award with Citelighter Points, which you will be able to redeem at a later time.
Citelighter was created to help you manage all of your research. The tool was created to ensure that you can rearrange the citations you have captured and add your own thoughts on the fly, to essentially have your paper completed before you expect.
The Citelighter add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
NOTE: To install the Citelighter extension for Chrome, drag and drop the downloaded .crx file onto the Chrome Extensions window.
