Dear students, Bibliographic management tools allow you to import, catalog, and organize bibliographic quotes from online databases and many other sources. Through a link to writing tools such as Microsoft Word, they allow the automatic creation of a bibliography to be included in the work being written. They may be available for free or require a license to be purchased.

Among the software available for free we point out:

  •  Mendeley: Manage user groups with whom to share and annotate bibliographies and articles. It is available for all operating systems and also in mobile version. Free online storage up to 2GB. Check out its guides and video tutorials
  • Zotero: born as a Firefox browser extension, now available as an independent application available for all operating systems (Zotero 5.0). Free online storage up to 300MB. Check out its guide

Among the software that requires the purchase of a license:
