See our Citation Managers Guide!

Zotero is a free, open source citation manager with a desktop app, browser extension, and integration with Google Docs, Microsoft Word, and LibreOffice. 

What is a citation manager?

Citation managers are programs that allow the users to collect, organize, and cite sources. They also allow for collaboration and some provide the ability to store and annotate PDFs within the system. 

Why use a citation manager?

  • Organize sources using folders, tags, and even group libraries for collaboration with people across the world.
  • Many have browser extensions or integration with library software to make it easy to collect items while you research.
  • Many integrate with Google Docs and/or Microsoft Word to make it easy to cite sources while writing.

 

Interlibrary Loan lets you get books and articles you need that the King Library doesn't own.

Create and sign into your Interlibrary Loan account with your SJSUOne ID and password.

  2. Click on the three-bar icon on the top left of the page (Google Scholar menu button)
  3. Choose "Settings" and "Library Links"
  4. Type in: San Jose State University.
  5. Check the box for "San Jose State University – FindIt@SJSU" and Save.
  6. Again under "Settings" for Bibliography Manager, select "Show links to import citations into RefWorks"
