    Citation Management

    Here are a couple of resources for quick formatting of citations:

    It is important to understand how to cite in a paper, but it's even more important to learn how to manage citations.  This includes:

    • storing citations from all of your research
    • adding notes, comments, or tags to your citation
    • being able to sort, search, and retrieve your citations when needed
    • using your citations with word processing programs to format according to style rules

    Does citation managment sound useful? UGA Libraries provides two free options.

    EndNote -- available at: http://libs.uga.edu/endnote/

    and

    RefWorks -- available at http://www.refworks.com/refworks

    Some Differences
    • RefWorks is a Web-based, fully online resource.
      • You will download the Write and Cite file to all RefWorks to work with your word processor.
      • Any updates will be made by RefWorks and do not require downloading.
      • Your references "live" online. You can access them from any computer as long as it it has a working Internet connection.
    • EndNote is a client-based resource with a companion website for sharing and back-up (up to 10,000 citations).
      • You download the EndNote program to your machine.
      • You must download any updates or patches.
      • Your citations "live" on your computer. You can work with them even if you don't have Internet access.

    You are not restricted to one or the other. If you wish, you may use both. Please ask your librarian, if you have any questions about the two programs.
