Choosing a Citation Tool

Writing a lot of research papers and/ or reports? This guide will help you choose and use a citation tool to help you create, edit, and organize citations for your sources. We will be adding to the content on a regular basis.

RefWorks Users: While you should begin thinking about which tool or tools you may want to use, remember you have until August 31, 2018 to move your references to a different tool.
