Managing your Research Citations

Today’s guest post was written by Heather Rogers, Education Reference, Instruction, & Collections Librarian. Many thanks to Heather for this helpful information about managing citations!

Thinking about using a citation manager for your research but not sure where to start? Already using one but need help? We have got you covered! Starting September 20, we will be hosting weekly citation manager drop-in clinics every Friday of the semester here at the Chester Fritz Library. Stop by the reference desk on the 2nd floor between 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. or between 1:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to ask librarians or our new peer research consultants for help with citation managers.

With our subscription to Web of Science, students now have access to EndNote. There are also fantastic free options such as Zotero and Mendeley and for current RefWorks account holders, there are still ways to continue using RefWorks Lite. No matter which one you choose, citation managers are great resources for organizing your references, sharing articles with classmates, and generating reference lists.

Learn more about how citation managers can be a great tool for your research on our citation manager research guide. Not able to come to the library? You can always get research assistance with our 24/7 chat service.
