Citation Management

When you find articles of interest in a database or search engine, bibliographic management programs such as Zotero or EndNote make it easy to create a personal collection of references (citations and/or articles) and easily cite them in your paper in APA Style.

Citation Managers

  • EndNote offers many of the same features. Must be purchased. Available from the University Computer Store, TechZone
  • Mendeley is a free application and does not require Internet access. It can query PubMed for more accurate citation information and matching PDFs, yet with mixed success.
  • Zotero is open-source and free. An additional plug-in is required to manage PDFs. Internet access not required. 

        *Briscoe Library provides classes and support for Endnote and Zotero.
