EndNote for Mac Users

What is a Bibliographic Manager?
All bibliographic managers store bibliographic information in a database. (The bibliographic information is the stuff you find in any record from our catalog and can include author, title, publication year--pretty much anything that will help identify a work.) They can be web-based or local. The intent is to facilitate your research by allowing you to keep records of the information you have gathered. In fact, most systems allow the user to store PDFs and images within the record.
The most important thing in selecting the right bibliographic management tool is to compare their features and functionality and determine the best fit. Carefully consider the types of resources you use because some bibliographic managers only handle journal articles while others only manage books. Some handle any type of reference from poster presentations to monographic serials. If you collaborate, you might consider a resource that will allow you to share your library with colleagues. If you hate formatting in-text citations, you might consider a resource with cite while you write functionality.
These are other software options that have their plusses and minuses.
