Managing Citations & Digital Files

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: RefWorks, a subscription tool paid for by the university, and Zotero, a free open source tool. Which one you use is a matter of personal preference. You can export your library from one citation management tool to another.

Please note: Legacy RefWorks is being retired by the vendor in 2023. If you are a Legacy RefWorks user, you will need to upgrade to RefWorks, or migrate your Legacy RefWorks library to another citation management tool, by the end of spring semester 2023.
