Citation Managers

Citation tools help you keep track of PDFs, citations, and bibliographies during the course of your research projects. Many citation managers share some common features, so choosing one can be a bit confusing. Ask a Dupré Librarian for help, or talk to researchers in your field to find out what they use and recommend.
