Citation or reference managers are tools that allow you to store, organize, and cite your sources.

Listed below is information for a few free reference managers - ZoteroMendeley, and EndNote Basic. If you have questions about using these or other reference management tools, please reach out. Support may be limited since these tools are not provided through the Library.

Full support is offered for Sciwheel which is available through the Library.
