What are citation tools?

Citation tools (sometimes called citation managers or reference managers) are programs that help you organize and cite your sources. You can export citations and articles from databases directly into your citation tool of choice, then use the same program to automatically cite your sources in Word and create a bibliography when your research is complete.

Two citation tools we recommend are RefWorks and Zotero.

Want to get started with citations, but don't know how? Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL) is an excellent resource for creating citations:
