Citation Management

An introduction to tools that streamline the process for using the sources you find.

Choosing a Citation Manager

Citation managers are amazing tools that can do so much for your research process, including:

  • Save and organize citations and pdfs of articles.
  • Generate in-text citations and reference lists.
  • Share resources with colleagues.
  • Generate bibliographies in a wide range of citation styles.

Compare Citation Managers

These are the two citation managers MCPHS librarians can help you with, but there are not the only citation managers in the world.
