Citation Management

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, though sometimes with less functionality, for free. This guide introduces and compares EndNote, Zotero, and Mendeley. Learn about citation generators, too!

Writing Center Resources

The Duquesne Writing Center provides guidance in citing sources. Please consult their page for appointments and quick reference sheets for various citations styles. (Note: Quick reference sheets provide information for the most commonly used citation types. When in doubt, please consult the official, complete style guides.)
