Starting Points

Major Style Guides

RefWorks

RefWorks is a research management tool you can use to create bibliographies, format footnotes, and organize information that you import from the library's databases and other online sources. Footnotes and bibliographies created with RefWorks are only as good as the information you import. You will still need to edit some references. For help with that, refer to the library's guide to citing sources.

 

Which version should I use?

  • I'm new to RefWorks
    We recommend using the New RefWorks. It has a modern design, plus many new enhancements.
  • I already have a Legacy RefWorks account
    Legacy RefWorks and new RefWorks can be used in tandem. You can create an account in the New RefWorks and experiment with the new version; your legacy account will be unaffected. Or you can continue using the legacy version, which will be available until late 2017.

Zotero

 

Zotero is a free, open-source research tool that helps you collect, organize, and analyze research and share it in a variety of ways. Zotero includes the ability to store author, title, and publication fields and to export that information as formatted references as well as the ability to organize, tag, and search in advanced ways. Zotero can automatically extract and save complete bibliographic references from online sources. Zotero effortlessly transmits information to and from other web services and applications, and it runs both as a web service and offline on your personal devices.

Zotero is a project of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media
