Citation Management Tools

With these tools you can collect book and article citations from the library catalog and databases. Then using a plugin for MS Word, you can insert those citations into your paper in the appropriate format. 

See the library guide, Manage Citations with Zotero, Mendeley, and EndNote, on how to use these tools.

Capturing Citations from the Library Catalog

You can export results to various tools. Use the Send to menu.

For EndNote, choose EndNote under Send to. This will download a file to your computer. Then go to EndNote and import the file.

For Mendeley or Zotero, choose Export RIS under Send to. This will download a file to your computer. Then go to Mendeley or Zotero and import the file.
