There are various free tools available, including Zotero, Mendeley and EndNote Basic. We avoid recommending anything specific as different people have different preferences and requirements. See our Finding and Managing Resources page for more details on features of different tools, including their availability online or on your desktop (download).

Both Mendeley and EndNote can be downloaded onto your computer from the internet.  You will need to download it onto each of the devices you use but they can be synced via the internet so your work is updated in all places.

Should you need any help in learning how to use reference management software please contact or make an appointment with your Academic Liaison Librarian.
