Citation Managers: Zotero and Mendeley

Reference manager applications allow researchers to save time by:                     Retrieving, collecting, and organizing references from our databases

  Creating bibliographies

  Inserting citations and footnotes in your research paper

                                           Offering collaboration tools for groups projects                  

 Please remember:

 Many different reference managers are available. Which is right for you? Consider:
