Resources for mechanical engineering and materials science

Citation Style

Instructors and commercially published journals will use different styles, so check the your instructor or a journal’s home page for the style they use.

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. The Library provides workshops and support for Zotero.
