Citation Management Tools

A guide to citation and bibliography management tools that help you collect, store, and organize your research.

Why Use Citation and Bibliography Tools?

Citation and bibliography management tools help you collect, organize, and retrieve citations you find during your research. Many can even work with your word-processing software to help format your final document via footnotes, endnotes, in-text citations, and bibliography creation.

Howard-Tilton Memorial Library provides Tulane affiliates with campus-wide subscriptions to:

  • EasyBib EDU
  • EndNote Basic (as part of Web of Science)
  • RefWorks

Howard-Tilton Memorial Library provides support for these open source tools: 

  • Mendeley
  • Zotero
