Zotero is a free citation manager with both desktop and web versions. It allows unlimited collaboration between users, but does have a smaller amount of storage space available for libraries. Zotero's web bookmarklet allows for quick webpage grabs, and it also imports information from library databases. There is an extension for Microsoft Word, although the features are more limited than EndNote or Mendeley.
