MFA Thesis – Excerpt 07

“The availability of open source software is breaking the barriers of discrimination in the arts as well as in other industries. The power of open source academic software, in particular, became apparent when producing this paper. Both proprietary software like EndNote and open source software like Zotero are available for reference management and citations. The developers of EndNote claim that it works very well with Apple Pages, Word and even open source software like LibreOffice and OpenOffice, but EndNote costs $249.95 downloaded or $299.95 shipped. Zotero, on the other hand, works with all previously mentioned word processors, and is free.”
