There are many citation managers available for free, and many available for purchase. Milne Library provides a basic level of support for Mendeley and Zotero, both of which are available for free.

Information to help get you started on both tools is available via the Mendeley and Zotero subject guides.  

Choosing a citation manager can be difficult, and it depends on how you do your work. For folks who need to manage a large number of files on their computer, we recommend Mendeley. For those who are starting from scratch and searching online databases, we recommend Zotero.

YouTube is an excellent source of infomation about these resources, and Wikipedia has an extensive list of citation managers and their features.
