Citing sources with a bibliographic manager

The Doane library recommends the following bibliographic managers to keep track of your references as you progress through your research:

  • Mendeley -- This is a free citation and resource manager. You can download documents with 2GB of free space.
  • Zotero -- Another free app to cite and organize your research, but with only 300MB of free space for saving documents.
  • Purdue OWL -- This isn't a bibliographic manager but you get great help writing citations in APA.

For information on how to use these tools, visit our Mendeley and Zotero Research Guide.
