What is citation software?

Citation and research management tools help you organize your research and keep track of your references. They also make it easy to add citations into the documents you're working on and automatically generating bibliographies in pretty much any style. Harvard supports the use of four main citation tools: EndNote, Mendeley, RefWorks, & Zotero.

Which one should you choose? Check out our Citation Tools Comparison Chart!

Citation Tools Comparison Sessions at Harvard

In these 90 minute sessions we discuss the elements that popular research management and citation tools have in common and how they differ, as well as special features and potential pitfalls of each. Our sessions currently cover New RefWorks, EndNote, and Zotero.

We do not plan to offer any more Citation Tools Comparison Classes during the spring 2017 semester. If you need assistance choosing a tool, use the comparison chart above and contact the librarians who teach citation tools classes via the form on the first page of this guide.
