Collecting and organising references

It is important to keep a good record of all the information sources you use and reference management software, such as RefWorks, Mendeley or Zotero can help you do this.

Visit our reference management tools webpage to learn more about these reference management tools and check the referencing style for your discipline.

There is also an interactive section on the Library Research Skills Moodle site that will help you to get to grips with managing your references.
