Organizing and Citing Resources

Citation Managers

There are many different ways to organize your references, but the easiest way is through a citation manager. Citation managers allow us to save, organize, and share articles and references. A few of the citation managers that the library promotes are Zotero, Mendeley, and EndNote. EndNote is a subscription-based citation manager. Zotero and Mendeley are free to use. 

Citation Styles 

The library has created a citation styles guide for additional information on the different citation styles.
