15 - Citation Management

Citation management software

Citation management tools make it easier to keep track of your sources and allow you to cite them in a variety of styles.

Citation management tools work by automatically importing citation information from library databases and other online tools, or allowing you to enter the information for each source yourself.

The software then stores this information until you are ready to create a citation or bibliography. Once you choose a citation style, the tool will create a properly formatted citation or bibliography.
