Citation Management

There are several programs that you can use to help manage your citations. You can collect, organize, and format references. Some of these programs also manage the PDFs associated with the citations, and may allow you to take notes within the program. WSU does not provide subscriptions to these programs, but there are several free options that are excellent for most research needs. 

EndNote
