Citation Management Software

citation management software

Citation management software is useful for organizing references and creating bibliographies. There are many citation management programs available, each with its own strengths. Many are available free or at a small cost. This guide introduces EndNote, Zotero, and Mendeley

The citation needs of many undergraduate students may be met using free citation generators, such as  EasyBib, BibMe, and NoodleTools Express.  Visit the Generators tab for more information.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at  Ask a Librarian.
