Endnote Online allows you to collect, track and manage the citations for articles you are using for papers or research, and to output those citations in any one of many different citation styles. While you should still plan to double-check your citations, Endnote Online/ MyEndnoteWeb uses the same high-quality citation formatting techniques as EndNote.
Use this link to access Endnote Online from off campus if you want to see the "Find it @Drew" link for your citations.
Zotero is a free citation management program with an online storage component. It can be downloaded from zotero.org
You'll want to sign up for a zotero.org account to save your references, and install the helper apps for your browser and Word.
