Citation Managers are software products that can help you to perform the following tasks:
- Create and organize a personal research database of references gathered from databases.
- Format manuscripts and reference lists instantly in a variety of styles (MLA, APA, Turabian, etc.)
- Share your databases with classmates and colleagues.
In order to decide which product will work the best for you (and you may even find it useful to use more than one), visit the online chart to compare features or consult the flyer, “Which one is right for you?”
The libraries support several products (EndNote, RefWorks & Zotero) and offer free workshops to students and staff. Visit the workshop schedule for November, browse the workshop calendar by topic (look for citation managers) or ask to speak with your librarian consultants.
