Having an effective strategy to manage your research is essential. You can use a citation management tool to organize citations to sources, collect digital files such as full-text PDFs, and cite sources automatically when writing papers.
The library provides support for two citation managers: Zotero, a free open-source tool, and RefWorks, a subscription tool paid for by the university. Which one you use is a matter of personal preference. A few advantages for each are outlined below.
