What is a Citation Management Tool?

Citation management tools enable researchers to capture information about research materials, create bibliographies, add footnotes, and manage research collections.  Some citation management tools also make it easy to share references with other researchers.

This guide only covers four of the citations managers available: Zotero, Mendeley, RefWorks, and EndNote.  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.

Use the tabs above to get more information about Zotero, Mendeley, RefWorks and EndNote.
