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/
