Citation Managers

A bibliographic citation manager can help you manage long lists of citations, help you format your citations in whatever style you wish, and take a lot of the heavy lifting out of writing an annotated bibliography. Below are links to guides that will teach you all about the three citation managers used most often at UC Merced: RefWorks, Zotero, and Mendeley.

PRO TIP: There are additional, short videos on how to create an account and use the above listed services here: Workshop Recordings.
