Citation Management Tools

There are many tools available to help you create and manage citations.

Tips: Be sure to review any citations generated with a tool. You may need to make corrections. Citation tools may be using a different edition of a citation style guide than those on the Library website.

  • Library Databases:  Most library databases will have a “Cite” or “Citation” tool. Use this to generate a citation for the source.
  • Word Processing Software:  MS Word and other word processing software may include citation management tools. In MS Word, look under the “References” tab.
  • Zotero:  Zotero is a free, open source tool to help you “collect, organize, cite, and share research.” https://www.zotero.org/
  • ZoteroBib:  ZoteroBib is a free tool that helps you to cite sources and create a bibliography in any citation style. https://zbib.org/
