The Baylor Libraries support three citation/reference management systems: Endnote, Refworks, and Zotero.
Citation management systems help you collect, organize and cite your scholarly or personal references. They also integrate with word processing software (i.e. Microsoft Word or Google Docs) to assist in generating in-text citations and bibliographies. Some systems also enable collaboration among scholars working on the same project.
