Undergraduate Students: How to Manage your citations

To assist you to correctly reference your sources, the Library offers classes in identifying the elements of a citation. If you can reference accurately, no matter what style you use, you will not lose marks allocated to referencing in your assessment tasks.

There are citation management programs which work with Microsoft Word. The following programs allow you to enter bibliographic information into a template and with a few clicks your referencing is done for you.

Each program provides the same basic features and functionality with such some exceptions. Learn how to manage your references with our guide. Individual program are below:

EndNote Online
Mendeley
Zotero
