Reference Management

Why use a reference manager?

Reference managers (also called "bibliographic software" or "citation managers") are designed to...

  • track where you found a particular idea, picture, fact, or quote so it can be properly cited later.
  • organize your references by research project in your own searchable database.
  • import references from online databases, library catalogues, journal indexes and web sites.
  • automatically format your references into any style you choose, such as MLA, or APA.

We offer introductions

  • Reference Management in General - How to find the right tool?
  • Software Workshop EndNote / Mendeley
  • Collaborative Reference Management

You can book us for your working group meetings or we can give you personal support.

Please contact us for any questions or concerns on reference management tools.
