Citation Management Programs

Refworks, Endnote, Endnote Web, and Reference Manager are citation management programs.  They allow you to: 

  • Gather references from article databases and library catalogs
  • Create and organize a personal database of citations related to your research (often including images and PDFs)
  • Generate bibliographies and format manuscripts in a variety of citation styles (MLA, APA, AMA, etc.)
  • Transfer references between RefWorks, EndNote Web, EndNote 

A citation is an electronic record for a book, journal article, website, film or other published item.  It includes the author, title, source (publisher or URL), and date.
