Reference management tools allow you to gather, manage, store, and share research.  They also work with Microsoft Word to help you create in-text citations and easy bibliographies in a variety of different citation styles. 

AHS currently supports three citation management programs:

1) Mendeley Desktop [preferred option] is a free desktop-based tool, suitable for individual research or for teams.  Information is available at  Requests for Mendeley can be made through the IT Service Hub. KRS offers support and education.

2) Zotero [permitted option] is another free desktop-based tool, suitable for individual research or for teams. Information is available at  It is widely known for its exceptional ability to manage web citations and it is easier to source full-text documents from the KRS collection. This can be requested through the IT Service Hub.

3) EndNote [permitted option, approval required] is a desktop-based licensed product and is available to select groups/individuals in AHS with supporting business case, where Mendeley or Zotero does not meet the business needs. This can also be requested through the IT Service Hub. Please note that personal licenses of Endnote cannot be installed on AHS devices, nor licenses purchased outside of AHS.
