Citation Management Software & Guides

Citation management software helps you organize the articles that you find when searching in databases, and automates the process of creating your bibliography when you're writing. There are many citation management software packages available, each of which has its own strengths and weaknesses.

The Arthur A. Wishart Library doesn't recommend any specific system, but we can help you get started using some of the more common ones.

Building on the work done by the Citation Management Working Group at Western University Libraries we've also developed quick start guides that can lead you through the process of setting up a citation management system, starting to add references to it from a database, and using it with MS Word to format your bibliography.
