Zotero is an alternative for managing citations that resides in your web browser, “right where you do your work.” It can be used as a stand-alone manager, or in conjunction with EndNote.

EndNote 101

EndNote is bibliographic citation management software tool that allows you to maintain a “personal library” of references and citations. It can also import citation information from the Library’s Catalog, online indexes, and databases. If you use Microsoft Word, you can insert citations from your personal libraries directly into your documents and create bibliographies from those citations. This workshop will teach you to use EndNote and EndNote Web (both of which are easy to use, but not intuitive) in just one hour.
