Citation Formatting in Databases

Tip: Many of our databases and the WorldCat Local catalog also include built-in citation formatting.

Citation Management Software
To manage your citations and make citing properly a little easier (independent of discipline), consider using citation management software. 

The Wallace Library currently supports the free and open-source program Zotero and Elsevier's free program Mendeley.

Zotero Logo
Zotero Unrestricted Resource
Zotero [zoh-TAIR-oh] is a free citation management program that allows you to collect, organize, cite, and automatically format your research materials. It comes in two versions: a Firefox extension and a standalone version; the latter is recommended if Firefox is not your primary browser.     

With Zotero, you can:

  • Import the bibliographic information of articles, books, websites, and other formats directly from library databases, catalogs, or the open web.
  • Import PDFs of articles from library databases when available
  • Add notes on each source directly to the Zotero entry for that source.
  • Organize entries into project folders.
  • ​Sync all entries to the cloud so that you can access them anywhere, anytime.  

Use Zotero with Microsoft Word or LibreOffice to:

  • Insert in-text citations directly from your Zotero database in the style of your choice.
  • Add bibliographies with one click of a button.
  • Change citation styles as needed.
