CIN380: Mobility and Migration in Moving Image Media

Which citation manager should I use?

Citation managers can help you:  

  • collect the citation information for books, articles, websites, and more 
  • automatically format in-text citations and bibliographies
  • save the citation information, PDFs and notes in the cloud
  • organize the research materials in folders or share folders with others

More info can be found in UofT Libraries Citation Management Guide or another great Comparison chart of reference management software on Wikipedia for even more suggestions.
