If you will be doing a lot of research, citation managers are an essential tool. Rutgers has subscriptions to the citation managers RefWorks and EndNote.


Zotero is a popular free citation management tool and a good choice for EndNote users nearing graduation because you'll be able to easily export your EndNote library. This Zotero research guide has instructions for beginning to use Zotero and transferring your EndNote content.


If you only need a quick citation or are working on a less-intensive project, free citation generators can be easily found online.


Citation tools sometimes make formatting errors, so it's best to compare the citation generated against a reputable reference source. The Purdue OWL is a commonly recommended source for citation formatting information. We also have available an in-depth guide to the APA and MLA styles.
