    Citation Management Tools

    As you write academic papers, you will need to use citations in order to give credit to other works you have used to support your argument, show background research, and provide a context to your studies.  Higher level academic papers require you to use a lot of citations, and you can use citation management tools to make keeping track of your sources easier. 

    A citation management tool is an online tool that allows you to store, organize, and export citations according to whatever style you need.  The University of Maryland subscribes to many tools that can make organizing your sources easier.
