Citation Management Software

Organize and Cite Easily with Citation Managers

Save time and cite properly!

Citation management programs are like EasyBib or NoodleTools on steroids and allow you to easily collect, manage, and organize your citations and work with databases (and often Word or other word processors), making it easy to import references and incorporate them into your writing, properly formatted in the style of your choice. 

From the programs that Cornell supports, you can use EndNote, Zotero, and Mendeley.

  • EndNote is available for purchase at the Cornell Store. Two Cornell colleges offer their communities free access to Endnote via site license: Human Ecology and Agriculture & Life Sciences.
  • Zotero and Mendeley are free and open source programs.

For more information on citation tools, citation management, and available workshops, see the Citation Management page on the Library site.
