How to use this reference management tool

Reference Management

Why use a reference management tool?

  • Collect citations as you research and save them in a personal account
  • Annotate citations and link them to full-text documents
  • Organize citations into folders

A reference management tool is most useful for advanced research, or when you are using more than 20 sources.
