Citation Guides

This guide can help you learn how to properly format your bibliographies and papers in AMA, APA, Chicago and MLA citation styles, and avoid plagiarism.

Reference Managers

The below library guides provide information about the installation and use of EndNote and Zotero. These tools are both reference managers (also called citation managers or bibliographic managers). 

EndNote is a subscription software program available at SBU. Zotero is free for anyone to use. SBU Libraries regularly teaches workshops about using both tools.
