Managing Your Citations

Citation manager software can help you manage the articles/citations/PDFs you gather as you research and can help you easily create properly formatted papers and bibliographies. The most popular citation manager software supported at UNM is:

    • Free and cloud-based (but you can sync with your desktop).  Visit the Zotero website to learn more and download the software. 
    • Visit the UNM Library's Zotero: A Beginner's Guide for information on how to get started and tips on how to set up Zotero to work in the UNM Libraries environment.

Other similar citation management tools are also available. To learn more visit this University of Washington Libraries webpage. 

Please contact Liz Cooper (, for questions or assistance.  I am glad to meet with you one-on-one to learn how to use these tools.
