What is the opinion of the community where to store literature references (e.g. books, articles). Should you do it as a separate Obsidian note (linked to the literature note where you summarize the content that you read) OR just in parallel create a Zotero reference outside. The outside solution has the advantage that you can integrate it with MS word if you write a piece and it doesnt clutter obsidian with a ton of literature references.
Curious to learn others´opinions about the subject.
I’m just getting started, but so far am using Zotero and exporting (to clipboard) the reference. I have Fleeting, Literature, and Permanent (or, Ideas) folders in my one Obsidian Vault. The Literature vault is a series of notes that include the citation output by Zotero; other content is either a brief summary or linked notes for concepts that warrant it. This is nice as some concepts will overlap across sources, so I like to be able to sort the graph by what ideas arose from a given source or by what sources shared a similar idea. Literature/reference “notes” make this possible.
Ideally, it would be trivial to link a reference from Zotero, or reference a link to that Zotero citation (without having to copy and paste it). I’d also like to be able to filter the graph to include only certain folders, for example, so I could exclude the literature if I don’t want to see that level of complexity.
I like the point with excluding certain folders. I did see that there is a feature request (Graph view: exclude specific folders from being displayed). For fleeting notes, I am using an Incubation folder to work on permanent notes before they reach the quality of a permanent note. I like your point about overlapping sources.
