What is reference management software and why should you use it?

Reference management software or citation managers allow you to collect, store and organise your references, and insert them into your documents quickly and easily. There are many options; Mendeley, EndNote and Zotero – Zotero being the only truly free and open-source reference management software.

Once you have stored a reference, you can use it over and over again in your reference list or bibliography. This can save you a lot of time, as you don’t have to manually type a reference each time you cite a particular source. Zotero reference manager works with Microsoft Office, LibreOffice and Google Docs.
