About Citation Tools

Citation and research management tools are software programs that 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 generate bibliographies in pretty much any citation style. Harvard primarily supports the use of Zotero, EndNote, and Overleaf Pro +.

We offer classes on using EndNote and Zotero generally during the first half of the fall and spring semesters. For help at other times, submit a question via the Citation Tools Help form

Zotero Classes at Harvard Library 

EndNote Classes at Countway Library
