Honors Scholars: Citation Management

Accessing Your Citation Manager

Citation managers can input citations into word processing documents and format a works cited at the same time. They change automatically for almost any citation style you could need! They also serve as your own searchable database of citations. The UGA Student Technology Fee, through the UGA Libraries, funds the licenses for two citation managers: EndNote, and RefWorks.

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. UGA Libraries may contact users periodically for feedback (but not spam).  


EndNote™ 20 for Windows or Mac is available, but is it for you?

Considering switching from Endnote X9 to Endnote 20?  Once you upgrade it is incredibly difficult to downgrade to a different version. Make sure Endnote 20 is right for you before you switch.  Here are some things to consider:

  • If you’re in the middle of a big project, we advise to wait until it is finished before upgrading
  • If you’re a graduate student or faculty member working with other Endnote users, consider waiting until everyone can upgrade
  • Browse the "Using EndNote" section of this guide for more information about EndNote 20
