Citation managers, such as Zotero and PaperPile are programs that allow 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 should you 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 with your research so you don't forget about the paper you saw 10 pages ago. 
  • Many integrate with Google Docs and/or Microsoft Word to make it easy to cite sources while writing.
