Citation Management

Citation management tools allow you to retrieve, store, organize, take notes on, and generate citations from all your information sources. Many citation management tools are collaborative and allow you to share sources with peers.

There are a number of different citation management tools available including:

zotero logo
EndNote logo  
mendeley logo
papers logo

After exploring each citation management tool, if you need help deciding which to use your librarian recommends either:

  1. Choosing the one that your collaborators use so that you can share sources and notes.
  2. Choosing Zotero because it is free and open source, and because your librarian uses Zotero and can help you.
