Information Management Tools

Why can't I manage academic papers like MP3s?
This was the title of James Howison & Abby Goodrum 2004 paper found here http://www.phaedo.cx/images/MP3vPDF.pdf which describes the evolution and intent of Metadata standards.

If you also ask yourself this question, then take look of a number of solutions which the library offers. The pros and cons are discussed of the following citation manager tools:


  • EndNote
  • EndNote Web
  • RefWorks
  • Zotero

We also provide in-person workshops on these resources and can recommend alternate tools that meet your specific needs. For example, use a MAC? Try Papers. Need to share citations, try Mendeley.
