Citation Managers

Citation managers are tools to help you manage the resources you find in the course of your research. At minimum, they allow you to easily create accurately formatted bibliographies and in-text citations. The more robust tools also allow to keep your notes about your resources and copies of the documents all in one searchable place, often accessible in the cloud as well as from your personal computer.

Using a citation manager will allow you to save a lot of time, to avoid tedious and uninteresting tasks, to better the quality of your bibliographies, and to concentrate on research and writing.

The UNR Libraries support three citation managers: EndNote Online, Mendeley, and Zotero. For information on how to use these tools, click on the links to the left or the tabs above.
