Citation managers are applications that collect, manage, and cite research sources. MSU Mankato's librarians recommend Mendeley or Zotero.
Mendeley or Zotero can help you:
- Create bibliographies and in text citations for assignments and research projects. Available writing styles include APA, MLA, Chicago, and many more.
- Organize citations to create a personalized literature database.
- Export citations for library databases and freely available websites.
- Save and annotate PDFs.
