Citation Management Tools

What can I do with a citation management tool?

  Create bibliographies and references automatically
  Check for and remove duplicate citations
  Add annotations, subjects, and descriptions to your citations
  Re-use your research over time
  Embed footnotes, end notes, and in-text citations in a document

What can't it do?

  Correct errors present in the original database records
  Create a perfect bibliography or Works Cited list, you must still check them for accuracy
  Create legal citation formats
  Can not import citations from a text file, Word File, or sheet of paper automatically

Determine the best citation management tool to use.

Organize citations and documents with RefWorks, Zotero, and Mendeley
