Citation Management

Citation management software is an application for individuals to create databases of citation information. This information can be used to create reference lists, bibliographies, as well as in-text citations. Some applications also allow the download of the files, and import / export citations publicly and privately.

Listed below are examples of citation management software that can be downloaded for free. By clicking on the icons, you will be directed to a YouTube link where they show you basic instructions on how to use the application.

Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. It can help you format your references in a variety of styles, including APA and Vancouver.


At Michener, we recommend you use Zotero because it makes it easy to do the following: 

  • Organize and store your resources
  • Import citations as you go and easily create a bibliography
  • Share resources with a group or between devices 

You can download it from the Zotero website.
