Citation and Research Management Tools

A library guide to citation and bibliographic 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.

Tulane University Libraries provides support for: 

  • EndNote X9 (Campus-wide subscription)
  • RefWorks (Campus-wide subscription)
  • Mendeley (Free)
  • Zotero (Free and Open Source)
