What is citation management software?
Citation management software helps you:
- organize references, PDFs, and images
- take notes on references and PDFs
- format bibliographies and in-text citations in hundreds of citations styles
- share references and collaborate on projects with colleagues
This guide only covers citation software supported by the library: Zotero, Mendeley, RefWorks, EndNote, and Papers. When deciding which one to use consider your research habits, word processing, and collaboration/sharing needs. These programs can work with each other and some people may need to use more than one throughout their academic career.
