Citation Management Programs

Keep track of your sources by using a citation manager. 

While all citation managers collect and organize reference data, each manager offers its own distinctive features. Both free and commercial versions of citation managers are available and offer valuable tools to the student researcher. The University Library provides RefWorks, but you may prefer Zotero or MendeleyCompare the three citation managers and decide which one will meet your needs best.
