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.
Zotero is a free, open source citation management tool that comes as a Firefox extension or a standalone program for other browsers. It offers plugins for MS Word and Open Office so you can insert citations as you write your paper.
