Citation and content management tools

Citation software (also called "bibliographic software," "citation managers," or "reference managers") helps you to:

  • import citations from your favorite databases and websites.
  • build and organize bibliographies.
  • format citations for papers.
  • take notes on articles and save them in your collection of citations.
  • save and organize pdfs, screenshots, graphs, images, and other files for your research.
  • create shared spaces for group/team collaboration

If we don't own it, we can get it for you.  Your options for obtaining materials are expanding, and the delivery times are shrinking.  The bad news - it is not always clear which option is the best for your needs.
