Bibliographies

Library workshops: Reference management tools that are out of cite

Has this ever happened to you?

You found a great source for a paper. You forgot to save it and couldn't find it again, OR you forgot to save the bibliographic information for the source (title, author, etc.), and you couldn't write its entry in your paper's bibliography, OR you saved all your source information, but you struggled to get the formatting correct for the in-text citation and reference section.

New RefWorks Version 2.0 Now in Beta

So you love citation management services - RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero, Papers (for the mac) etc. You love the ease of adding the citations of articles you find to your very own account. You love generating bibliography lists with a few quick clicks. You love how it keeps your citations findable forever.  But if you have compared the available services, what makes one of them really stand out from the others?

How do I format my bibliography and paper using ASME style in REFWORKS? ASME style does not appear in my favorites when I go to 'Output Style' menu.

RefWorks is a web-based software application that helps you manage citations. It helps you keep track of the sources you are using for your research and your own notes about the sources. It is web-based (no special software installation, downloads, or plug-ins required).

Downloading Citations from arXiv

If you refer to arXiv very often and need to download citations, you might want to consider Zotero, a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources. It lives right where you do your work—in the web browser itself.
