Tool to consider: Manage your research photos with @chnm's Tropy
Tropy, a new tool from the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (the same people who offer Omeka and Zotero), allows you to organize all the photos you took during your trip to the archive. You can attach metadata, gather them in files and make notes. Much better than trying to organize them in your Photos library!

VRA Adobe File Info Panel & Bridge Metadata Panel version (beta)
The VRA panel is meant to facilitate sharing descriptive metadata between a user and a chosen recipient, such as a database curator, an image sharing service, or a colleague.

Allow curators and collection managers to more efficiently collect metadata from faculty and student contributors and ingest it into a central database.
Allow database assistants to enter pre-cataloging information, i.e., source captions, original resource documentation, or backlog tracking information.
Empower contributors to keep embedded metadata in their image files for the purpose of managing them with common desktop photo applications and sharing with colleagues and students.
Use Adobe Bridge's bulk metadata input and editing capabilities to increase efficiency.
Create data that is both Core 4 and IPTC compatible, i.e., it is interoperable with most photo software and can be easily ingested into a Visual Resources database.
Facilitate the creation of semantic web ready digital images that are self-describing through the use of embedded RDF/XML metadata.

ProQuest Flow
One click imports all your existing references (and annotations). One click drags full-text articles into Flow — and enters the reference metadata for you. One click saves references and documents from anywhere on the web (including from behind paywalls).

Frictionless Collaboration

Share readings and collaborate with up to 10 people for free. Review articles with your peers — or your professors. Jointly annotate documents with members of your research group. Collaborate on papers with researchers from any institution, anywhere in the world.

Research Anywhere

Since Flow is cloud-based, there's no software to install or update. You can access your research instantly on any device. And when it comes to writing, Flow for Word syncs with your library so you can cite right in your document — no Internet connection required.

research methodology.

"Remember, how you organize your data will have a profound effect on your thinking." (Galarza, Alex. “Zotero in the Archives.” GradHacker. Accessed December 17, 2013. http://www.gradhacker.org/2011/08/03/zotero-in-the-archives/.)

Here is one example of how a Zotero library could be organized for archival research:

Tool: Tabula, a tool for liberating data tables trapped inside PDF files.
"If you’ve ever tried to do anything with data provided to you in PDFs, you know how painful this is — you can’t easily copy-and-paste rows of data out of PDF files. Tabula allows you to extract that data in CSV format, through a simple interface. And now you can download Tabula and run it on your own computer, like you would with OpenRefine."

Pearls Extension Finds Multiple Keywords on a Single Page
The extension allows you to enter multiple search terms across the page you're on, all pages on a specific domain, or across all sites. Each term gets its own color and the searches are remembered even after you leave the page. The extension defaults to searching for exact matches (so, searching for "hack" would not highlight "Lifehacker"), but you can toggle between exact and partial matches.

Managing My Work & Life: How I use Evernote — Colleen Greene
I have been hooked on Evernote for several years now. It is by far the single most highly used app in my personal and professional information management system. I use it all day every day — on my Macs, my PC, my iPhone, and my iPad. Every single note that I type on my mobile devices (and oftentimes on my regular computers) goes into Evernote. Every bit of information (cheat sheets, reference materials, web clippings, receipts, travel documentation, etc. ) that I want quick immediate access to goes into Evernote.

… a simple way to do referenced notes on selections in a PDF [by a] simple workflow [...] : highlight text in a PDF; add a small note associated with that text; export all annotations for the PDF in a format that lists sequentially: Document title, page number, each highlighted text followed by its note
