There are several software packages that help you collect, format, and save the citations for all your sources. The Library provides workshops on both EndNoteOnline and Zotero - check the Library Events Calendar.
A web-based citation management tool available through the web via the Drew Library subscription to Web of Science and Knowledge.
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.
ZoteroBib is a free tool that lets you format bibliography citations automatically-- look up articles and books by title, DOI, or ISBN and websites by URL, and you can then export your citations in one of nearly 10,000 formats
