Zotero and Endnote: Citation Management Tools

Citation management tools can help you collect, organize, and reuse sources that you find in your research. They are especially helpful for creating lists of references in the style you need and for organizing PDFs of articles or reports.  Zotero is free (and travels with you when you leave ASU), while EndNote is free for ASU students, faculty, and staff.   Need help choosing a citation management tool?
