Managing citations (or references) for papers and other projects can be very timing consuming. Citation Management Systems (software) make it much easier; they collect and organize citations electronically, insert them right into a Word document as you write it, and create a citation list (bibliography) at the end of the document.

UM Libraries offer subscriptions to Citation Managers with the exception of Zotero (free). To create an account in one and learn more about it, see options below. They can also be accessed through the Databases A-Z list on the UM Libraries home page.

     Always create accounts, using your Cane ID.
     The words "citations" and "references" are synonymous

Comparing Systems - which one?

Note: Comparing citation management systems is finicky work. Still can't decide after checking the guides below? Experiment in one. If it doesn't meet your needs, export your citations or references into another.
