Q. What is a citation manager? What are my options?

Answer

Citation Managers such as RefWorks are software applications that will help you…

  • Gather references automatically from article databases while you research
  • Format manuscripts and citations in a variety of styles (MLA, APA, Turabian, etc.)
  • Create and organize a personal research database of references, images and PDFs
  • Share your databases with colleagues around the world
  • Transfer references among RefWorks, EndNote Web, EndNote, and Zotero.

Choosing a Citation Manager

The Vassar Library provides access to RefWorks for all Vassar students, faculty and staff.  Zotero is a free, open source Firefox extension.
