Why might you use citation management software? To create a personal database that has key information about the resources you have chosen for your literature review. 

  • You can also include pdf articles or links to the available full text of articles (or links to online books, web sites, etc.)
  • You can also keep personal notes related to the information you see as important for each article, etc. 
  • You can also use these for automatically creating citations and references in your papers according to APA style guidelines. This Write-n-Cite feature is one of the greatest reasons to use citation management software.

The librarians at FLITE recommend Zotero - free and easy-to-use citation management software.
