Research Tools: Citation Managers

Using Citation Managers

Citation managers (sometimes called reference managers or bibliographic managers) offer online storage for citation information and software to generate citations. Some citation managers are free, but robust tools often require paid subscriptions. The following alphabetical list shows a few free citation managers. Note: Outside programs cannot be downloaded to campus computers.

Remember, no software program can think as well as you can. Always check your work using a current manual for your documentation style.
