Citation Management

Meet with your subject librarian to learn how to organize literature. Tools that can be helpful:
  • EndNote is free through IUware (a great tool for getting other programs for free with your IU credentials) or can be purchased by individuals. 
  • Zotero is free to all, with costs for upgraded storage. 
  • Mendeley is another citation tool (basic use is free, but there are also tiered storage plans that cost money, similar to Zotero)
The Scholars' Commons in the Wells Library offers workshops, which feature citation management strategies
