Citation Tools and Sources

There are many different styles for citing sources from your research. To learn about various style guides and how to cite different types of sources use the special citation management tools.
Citation management tools are programs (web-based or browser-based) that collect records or citations from research databases (indexes, catalogs, etc.) that you can then organize for your research projects. They also help you cite your research by creating bibliographies, citations, and footnotes automatically.
