Citation Management Software

Citation management software makes it easier to keep track of your sources and to format your citations. 

U of T subscribes to RefWorks ProQuest, a database that lets you add references you find in the library catalogue and in article databases. RefWorks also works with Microsoft Word and Google Docs to allow you to format your in-text citations and reference list more easily.

You can also use a number of free citation management services, such as Zotero, which work with Microsoft Word. This citation management guide can help you compare the various free and paid services available, including U of T price discounts.

No citation management software is perfect - for example, it's easier to add books from the library catalogue to RefWorks, but it's easier to add blogs or websites to Zotero - and no software can tell you how and when to cite your sources. However, citation management software can save you valuable time formatting and organizing your research.

If you have any questions or want help set up the software, email your librarian Kate.
