Citation Management Tools

Renee Montgomery

UCF Libraries offers two citation management programs to the UCF community, EndNote and RefWorks. Both programs are designed to assist researchers with collecting & organizing their citations.

Benefits of using citation management software include:

  • The ability to collect & organize citations: Gather citations with the click of a button from online sources like library catalogs, electronic databases, and Google Scholar, or enter citations manually. Organize your citations for multiple projects, search your citations for a particular author or title and display your citations in a variety of style formats.
  • Access citations online: Access your citations online from anywhere by logging in to your Refworks or EndNote Web account. Link to online articles directly from your citations.
  • Create Bibliographies and Format In-Text Citations: Insert properly formatted in-text citations as you type as well as automatically create bibliographies using your discipline’s citation style.

RefWorks and EndNote workshops are offered at the John C. Hitt Library and are open to all university faculty, staff and students. Click here to view the workshop schedule.

Mendeley is another citation management option that allows you to manage citations and PDFs from your desktop or the web. Setting up a free account provides 2 GB of storage space and includes plugins for Word or OpenOffice. For questions, email Corinne Bishop: corinne.bishop@ucf.edu.
