For many students, faculty, and staff, summer is the time to work on research or organizational projects that fell by the wayside during the rush of the academic year. Is finally deciding to improve the way you manage your research citations on your summer to-do list? If so, the Library can help. While we cannot promise that you’ll ever think citations are fun (although it’s possible, believe it or not!), we can help you set up a system that turns them from a dreadful chore into an easy and helpful step in the research process.
The Library provides support for EndNote Web (now free for all users both during and after their UW-Whitewater affiliation) and Zotero (free for everyone). These citation managers allow you to organize your references and create bibliographies at the touch of a button. They’ll even help you easily store your PDFs in a logical manner!
