Managing Citations with Cost-Free Tools
Ovadia, Steven
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v30 n2 p107-111 2011
As faculty members receive more access to more electronic collections, they are forced to deal with the issue of bibliographic management. Historically, dealing with print material has been relatively simple: The only way to manage something being cited from a print resource was to hold the physical object (or a copy of the original) and create a citation from the bibliographic information provided by the work. However, with all of the electronic research collections now available, more and more faculty members are finding more and more research in electronic form, giving faculty members the opportunity to harvest the metadata and turn that metadata into an automatically generated citation. This article examines three cost-free bibliographic management tools: (1) Zotero; (2) Mendeley; and (3) citeulike. These tools are very good about letting the user export their data and seem to work well with the BibTeX format.
