Bibliographic citation managers are pieces of software that:

1 - let you save and manage the results of your literature searches - the article and book citations you find. Think of citation managers as tools for building your own personalized library.

2 - automatically generate and format in-text citations and bibliographies of citations from your personalized library. These citations can be in whatever citation style you choose (eg, APA, MLA, Chicago etc).

Check out our library resource guides on the follow free citation managers:
