Learning a citation management program is essential to help build your own digital library and to streamline the bibliography process. While there are numerous citation management programs available, the following 3 are probably the best well known:
Emory University has a site license for the citation management program EndNote. You can download and install EndNote from the Software Express server with your University NetID and password. For Mac users running Big Sur, you will have to download EndNote 20 from the Software Express server.
For additional information regarding EndNote, visit the WHSC Library's EndNote page.
There are other open source (free) citation management programs available like Mendeley and Zotero. Please visit the citation management page for more information.
Emory University Licenses Covidence, a tool that helps with the literature review process from deduplication of records, to the screening process, all the way to the extraction process. Covidence is available to all Emory faculty, staff, and students. Non-Emory individuals working on Emory projects can be added to a project, once an account has been established.
