What is citation management software?
Citation management software allows a user to organise and retrieve information by interfacing with databases and websites. The citation manager then works with word-processing software to insert footnotes%20OR%20citations into a paper and create a properly formatted bibliography. Comparison of reference management software (Wikipedia).
- EndNote is a widely-used bibliographic reference software tool. Trinity College Dublin has a site licence for EndNote for College-owned computers, but a free web-based version is available to all. Help page for EndNote
- Zotero is a free, open source, web-based tool for managing citations, organising pdfs and creating bibliographies
- Mendeley allows you to easily organize your papers, read & annotate your PDFs, collaborate in private%20OR%20open groups, and securely access your research from everywhere
