Writing and Citing: Citation Managers

About Citation Managers

The secondary pages located off of this tab describe three citation managers available to student and faculty:





  • RefWorks: The ideal tool for faculty and upperclassmen to collect and organize their citations. This feature-rich product is one of the more popular citation managers and is therefore nearly always an available option when selecting the "Export" function available in the library's catalog and nearly every major database. Folders can be created and arranged to a user's liking and links are available to retrieve the full text of saved articles. Bibliographies can be created in every major citation style. The newest version of RefWorks was released in 2016. View features and information | Go to RefWorks



  • EasyBib: The suggested choice for undergraduates, EasyBib contains features similar to Zotero and RefWorks but in a much more straightforward way. Additionally, EasyBib provides guidance regarding credible websites and will actually offer suggestions. EasyBib has recently changed it's procedures, which requires the user to enter a academic coupon code upon initial sign-up or must be applied even if the user already has an EasyBib account. Instructions for setting up or converting an account to the latest version (2016) of EasyBib | Go to EasyBib.




  • Zotero: This open source product has become increasing popular within the academic community because it is open source and browser based - meaning - authentication through a library's subscription system is not necessary. It also integrates wonderfully with Firefox, Microsoft Word and is both PC and Mac compatible. Zotero is also very good at storing web sites and all citations can be exported into other popular citation managers (OneNote, RefWorks) via .ris format.
