Citation management tools for organizing your research
In the process of doing research, you will encounter a multitude of resources including books, articles, and websites. Keeping all of these organized as you progress, creating bibliographies or lists of resources, and collaborating and sharing information can be a daunting and time-consuming task.
Citation management tools can be a great way to do all of these things and more. With a relatively easy-to-use tool, you will be able to organize and save the resources you find in databases and on websites. And with virtually the click of a button, you will be able to generate bibliographies in nearly any citation style.
There are a number of citation management tools available that are compatible with many of the databases and resources you'll use. Visit the citation management help page to get started. It only takes a few minutes to set up an account with such tools as Zotero and Mendeley. If you are affiliated with the College of Human Ecology, you can download a Endnote here.
