This guide will help you cite your sources properly to avoid plagiarism, important for students to maintain academic integrity. It also introduces various tools for creating and managing citations, including library-supported Mendeley and Zotero.
Mendeley is a free citation manager and academic social networking tool. Mendeley is a desktop application so you will need to make your account and download it to your own personal computer (not available on University-owned public computers). It also has web browser and mobile functionality so you can access your Mendeley library while away from your computer. Mendeley allows you to save and annotate sources and create citations and bibliographies. It also has other useful features, like recommending articles based on your research areas.
Use the resources linked below to get started with Mendeley, or to find help with using this citation manager.
You can also follow Mendeley on Twitter for updates, tips and support:
