Use Citation Manager to collect your sources and format your citations

There are a variety of Citation Managers to choose from - full list of Citation Managers. However, Zotero is an open source citation manager that is recommended by Innis College Librarian. Feel free to email Kate if you want to discuss the other citation managers. 


Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") is a program that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's easy to use, connects to your web browser where you do your work, and best of all it's free.

Zotero allows you to attach PDFs, notes and images to your citations, organize them into collections for different projects, and create bibliographies.

It automatically updates itself periodically to work with new online sources and new bibliographic styles.
