Using a Citation Manager
Consider using a citation manager instead of typing bibliographies and in-line citations by hand. It will save you time.
RefWorks is a citation manager available to the campus community via the Library website that lets you:
- export citation information from databases
- import information from other sources
- organize and generate works cited pages and bibliographies in a variety of styles.
