If you are not using a citation manager (e.g. Mendeley, Zotero, or EndNote), today is the day to start. The citation manager will automatically format your citations and bibliography, but don't forget to check it for accuracy!
The library offers workshops in Zotero and Endnote (upcoming classes).
Bibliographic management software can save a lot of time and frustration. Start organizing as soon as possible!
Zotero and Endnote are both excellent tools for organizing bibliographies and creating properly formatted citations. Zotero is freely available at their website and Emory has a site license for EndNote. You can obtain a copy by downloading the software from Emory's Software Express site (Emory network ID required). Mendeley, Papers, and Citavi are other popular software options.
