What is citation management software?

  • Citation management tools allow you to organize and retrieve information, such as citations for books, articles, and Web sites, by interfacing with library databases. 

  • The citation manager then works with word-processing software to insert properly formatted footnotes or citations into a paper and create a properly formatted bibliography.


Three options for citation management

Zotero: Free, great for group work, see our Getting Started with Zotero guide

Endnote: Good for large batches of citations, two Cornell colleges offer their communities free access to Endnote via site license:  Human Ecologyand Agriculture & Life Sciences.

Mendeley: Free, Self-guided instruction in the form of tutorials, FAQs, & videos are available through Mendeley help guides.
