Williams College has prepared a webpage with a useful summary of ACS style.

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.
