There are many free citation management tools available and the library provides support in the use of some of them:

All of the above provide the same basic functions such as:

  • ability to collect, save, organize your references and pdf documents
  • ability to search your own collection and add notes
  • ability to create bibliographies in different citation styles such as APA, MLA…
  • ability to work with Word so you can write, include citations, and produce your final bibliography
  • ability to share/collaborate

This feature comparison chart prepared by Western University Libraries compares Mendeley, Zotero, and EndNote and  can be helpful in deciding which one might best serve your needs.

Please feel free to contact us at citation@library.carleton.ca if you have questions or would like a demonstration of any of the above tools. You can also plan to attend a general workshop: Schedule of  Fall/Winter 2015/2016  Workshops in Citation Management
