Citation management tools are downloadable or web-based software that allow you to collect, organize, cite, and share your research references. They make it easy to create citations and bibliographies in different style formats (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) and build your own online research library. 

This guide will connect you to 3 different Citation Management Tools: RefworksEndNote Online, and Zotero.
