What is a citation?
Citations are the details that describe books, articles, and other sources containing information.
What are citation managers?
Citation managers are programs that help you track citations and research. The main purpose is to record citation information and store PDF files so that you do not have to track down items multiple times.
Who needs one?
If you have an extensive project that involves a lot of research and spans several semesters or courses, then a citation management program might be useful to you!
Who do I go to with questions?
Contact Librarian Erin Milanese (erinm, x 7426) if you have specific questions about citation management programs.
These tools can help you generate citations in different styles, however be sure to double check all citations for accuracy!
Some citation management programs involve a syncing process which does not work on networked computers at Goshen College. For Zotero users, our ITS Department recommends that you use your personal device to save and access articles (rather than a networked PC).
