Citing and Keeping Track of Citations

EndNote, RefWorks, Zotero, Mendeley, and other bibliographic management programs will:
    - Let you create a database of citations you find;
    - Let you organize these citations in folder or groups
    - Link to PDF files, or store PDF files in your database;
    - Work with Microsoft Word to correctly cite citations into your document.

RefWorks is licensed by the UCB Library and is free to use for UCB students.
