What are citation managers? They are apps that allow you to import citation information from databases and catalogs, save PDFs, and format citations for your research using different citations styles (e.g. MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.). Some managers also allow you to include your own notes.
Common citation managers include Zotero, Mendeley, and Endnote. Many of these are FREE! More information on citations and a comparison of citation managers.
