EndNote is reference management software with features to—

  • Keep all your references and reference-related materials in a searchable personal library.
  • Synchronize your references between up to three of your personal computers, an online library, and your iPhone or iPad, through EndNote Sync. (You must be the owner and user of all three computers.)
  • Share your references with collaborators through EndNote Sync.
  • Use your references in word-processing documents to create formatted citations and bibliographies or independent reference lists.


Zotero is a free reference management system where you can collect, manage, cite, and share research. You can use it to store references, highlight and annotate webpages, and collaborate by using groups through Zotero's website. All your references will be saved to the Zotero server. Zotero works with word processors (e.g. MS Word, Openoffice, and Word Perfect) so you can insert citations into research papers and create bibliographies from your saved citations.
