This guide recommends two digital tools, Zotero and Endnote, for managing source citations. While other tools, such as RefWorks, Mendeley, Reference Manager, or other online applications may be more familiar to the user, KU Libraries currently provides access and support for Zotero and Endnote for KU faculty, staff, and students.
Keep track of your sources, generate citations and bibliographies, and store documents. Zotero lives within the Firefox browser or as a stand alone window in Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. Get started by watching the tutorials on the left or sign up for an IT workshop. For a step-by-step guide to using Zotero, watch the first tutorial on the left. For a quick overview of Zotero, watch the second tutorial to the left. For additional help, click the link How to Select and Use Citation Management Tools.
Use Endnote to build your library of references. You can create multiple libraries using Endnote. Endnote is a software program that KU students can download for free.
