Zotero Citation Tool
Zotero is a citation management tool, an application that allows you to keep track of the sources you use, and when the time comes, generate the citations and bibliographies in the proper format (which you can select and change at any time!). It is best to begin using Zotero at the beginning of a research project, but once you've added it to your workflow, you'll end up working smarter. View the Quick Start Guide to learn more!
Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share research. A plugin is available for Microsoft Word that integrates citations and bibliographies seamlessly.
Citation Help Sites
The library has many citation/publication style manuals in print, below are several sites we like for citation help.
APA tutorial and examples (Purdue OWL)
The Online Writing Lab (OWL) from Purdue University is a sitethat provides explanations and examples of the APA method of document formatting.
ZoteroBib helps you build a bibliography instantly from any computer or device, without creating an account or installing any software. It’s brought to you by the team behind Zotero. If you need to reuse sources across multiple projects or build a shared research library, we recommend using Zotero instead.
Writing help is located in the Communication Center, on the first floor of the library. When you come by, they set aside one-on-one time to help you. You will be helped by your fellow students, and they even have subject specialists.
