Citation Management

Need help learning EndNote, RefWorks, and the rest? You've come to the right place.


Endnote and Refworks are the two citation managers we provide at UGA. They can be used to input citations into your Word documents and also to format your works cited page for your research papers all at the same time. The best part is they do this automatically for almost any citation style you could need!

The UGA Student Technology Fee, through the UGA Libraries, funds the licenses for two citation managers: EndNote, and RefWorks.

Note: EndNote and RefWorks are available to all faculty, staff and students at UGA. Exclusions may affect certain patron classes. Please ask at any UGA Libraries' Reference desk.


ENDNOTE X9 has arrived! If you are moving from a previous version to X9, we recommend doing this ahead of time:

  • Sync your records with EndNote Online before downloading X9.
  • Save a copy of your EndNote library (the .enl, .enlp or .enlx file) to a USB, or external drive, as a back up.
  • Just before downloading X9, uninstall X8
    • Mac users should perform the uninstall using "Customizer"

There are many other citation managers. Please see: Wikipedia: Comparison of Reference Management Software for more on the functionalities of citation managers.
