Keeping track of your sources is a vitally important part of research. Citation management softwares help you keep track of what articles, books, and journals you are reading, either for class, for research, or for fun. Managing your citations will come in handy when you are writing your bibliographies or when you are looking for an article you read two years ago and want to quote again.
UF provides access to a variety of citation management softwares, which you can compare using the Citation Management Library Guide.
The first link for each will take you directly to the software and will open in a new tab.
For examples of the different citation styles and an overview of citing your references and creating footnotes, as well as many other writing-related resources, you can't go wrong with the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL). Take a look!
To cite your references you will need to keep track of the following information for all your resources. We recommend using a citation Management software.
