Citation management software

What is citation management or bibliographic management software?

'Citation management tools allow a user to work with, organize and retrieve information, such as books, articles, and Web sites, by interfacing with library databases. The citation manager then works with word-processing software to insert formatted footnotes or citations into a paper and create a  formatted bibliography' (Adapted from source: Citation Management) .

Open source, retail and web-based versions include those listed below and more.  USQ provides EndNote free to all staff and students for their desktop and laptop computers. The Library conduct classes in using EndNote regularly throughout the academic year. YouTube EndNote Training videos provide excellent online tutorials,  and support with installation is provided by ICT and the Library. There is no support for other bilbiographic software at USQ to date.
