Reference management tools enable you to create a personal database of references relevant to your work. These tools can help you gather bibliographic data from a range of sources, organise and manage this data, cite references in your writing and generate bibliographies.

There are a number of software options available, and choosing the right reference management tool for you will depend on your personal preferences and technical requirements. This session will outline the principles behind reference managers and introduce three specific tools: Zotero, Mendeley and Endnote. The workshop will also signpost you to some self-guided training materials to enable you to set up the software of your choice.
