Citation Guides

The resources listed below can be particularly helpful. Ask your professor if he or she prefers a particular citation style, and consult the library's guide to citing sources for additional resources.

If you need more help, don't hesitate to ask a librarian.


RefWorks is a research and citation management service 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.

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.

For Zotero support at Hamilton please contact Alex Wohnsen, Research Librarian for Digital Initiatives & Experiential Learning.

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