Citation Managers

The Claremont Colleges Library supports the citation management tool Zotero to help you with your research.

Why Use a Citation Manager?

Citation managers are tools that help you:

  • Collect and organize citations and PDFs for books, articles, webpages, and more.
  • Create and format bibliographies using a specific citation style.
  • Store or link to the original source.
  • Create in-text citations while writing in Microsoft Word.
  • Collaborate with others.
