FILM 404 - Sexuality and Media Narratives

Citation Manager Tools: Zotero & EndNote

Save yourself many hours of work by using citation manager software to manage bibliographic citations.  They automate much of the work of capturing, organizing and formatting citations and bibliographies in your writing:

  • Zotero - available as a free Firefox plugin to any user, and now also as a stand-alone program.  RECOMMENDED
  • EndNote and EndNote Web - available at no cost to Emory students, faculty and staff.

Which citation manager is right for you?  See our Citation Manager Comparison Guide.

Woodruff Library offers workshops and tech support for both programs.
