Bibliographic citation managers are pieces of software that let you save and manage the results of your library research - the article and book citations you find. What really makes citation managers useful, though, is that they can also automatically generate and format your in-text citations and bibliographies in whatever citation style you choose (eg, APA, MLA, Chicago etc).

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

Zotero (http://libguides.royalroads.ca/zotero)

These guides will provide you with step-by-step instructions for setting up an account and getting started!
