Utilize the power of citation management resources to organize and use your references. Most major bibliographic databases allow you to export selected citations into citation management resources, such as Zotero and EndNote. You can then insert these citations into your Word document as well as create a bibliography in any of several formatting styles. To learn more about how to use citation managers and what tools are available, check out these following resources:
EndNote is a client-based software product that must be purchased and loaded to your computer. Check with your department to see if EndNote is provided through your department. If not, UIUC affiliates can acquire EndNote at a discount through the UIUC SoftWare WebStore.
There are other possibilities—dozens, perhaps hundreds of options. Some of these are free, such as Zotero and Mendeley. Both have desktop and web versions. Please ask your colleagues, or check with a librarian, for more options and details.
