Tools for organizing research


If you’re like most students at this point in the semester, you are probably juggling multiple research papers or projects. Keeping track of your research from all those various places you have to look (book catalogs, journal databases, and websites) can sometimes be challenging.

There are a number of free citation management tools on the market that can help you get organized. These tools will help you save and organize all of your research in one place, in much the same way that iTunes does for your music files. Some of them will even insert citations and bibliographies into your paper for you. Check out this library guide to explore some of the more popular tools available.
