Zotero and Other Citation Management Tools

For More Information...

There are several other citation management tools available through the University of Washington, such as EndNote, and Mendeley. You can find out more about these tools and see a comparison chart of features here. The helpful people at the UW Research Commons know A LOT about citation management tools and you can make an appointment to see them if you'd like additional information or instruction.

Although choosing a citation management tool can feel overwhelming ("what if I choose the wrong one??") don't let the decision paralyze you into not selecting one at all! No matter which tool you pick, rest assured that you will have the ability to export your references to another system at a later date if you so choose. Instructions on how to transfer references to or from Zotero from other tools are available through the UW Libraries Zotero guide.
