Make Your Life Easier with a Citation Manager

By this point in the semester, you’ve probably got a Downloads folder full of PDFs, a pile of articles sitting in your printer, and maybe even a stack of books on your desk for good measure. No big deal, right? Sure, maybe you’re one of those robots who can wrangle all of that information and still find time to fold your towels:

But for those of us who are humans, the Penn Libraries Guides site has a new page all about your options for using a tech tool to organize and manage your citations: http://guides.library.upenn.edu/citationmgmt. Get information on RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero, and Mendeley, and see if one of these can help you keep things together and create bibliographies in a snap.

Want to talk to a human about citations? Our guide also lists contact info for our librarian experts on each of the tools. Or you can drop by my Mendeley Office Hours on 12/3, or stop by the Citation Clinics any day this week or next from 4-5pm in the Van Pelt Reference Area:
