Citation Management

Consider using a citation management tool to track the resources you are finding in your searches.

A citation management tool will help:

  • organize your research all in one place
  • avoid plagiarism by tracking your research path
  • create in-text citations with the click of a button(s)
  • easily format or re-format bibliographies
  • share folders of citations with a group or professor

UBC Library supports the use of Zotero and EndNote Online (via Web of Science).
