"Citation managers" are programs that allow you to organize your references and sources. They are very similar to how iTunes organizes your music.
There are several free and paid citation managers available, but we recommend Zotero. Zotero is a free citation manager offered by George Mason University.

Warning for Students
Sometimes these programs incorrectly format references, for which your professor may deduct points. It is your responsibilty to use style guides to double-check the accuracy of automatically-generated citations.
