HCS 201: Health and the Caring Professions: Citing Sources


Zotero is a free citation management tool that can automatically import citations into your personal account, organize sources into folders, and generate bibliographies in a variety of citation styles. It also includes a word processor plugin for formatting footnotes and parenthetical citations.



ZoteroBib is Zotero's quick cite tool.


Suggestions for Citing Sources

  • Use the library's Research Guide on Citing Sources for information on Chicago/Turabian and UR's citation management tools.
  • Use ZoteroBib  if you have a short bibliography but need help in putting it into a correct format.
  • Use RefWorks if you have a longer bibliography and/or have time to learn a more sophisticated citation management tool.


More sophisticated than EasyBib, RefWorks is a web-based tool that allows you to collect and organize citations, format papers, and create bibliographies. RefWorks allows you to create bibliographies in individual journal styles, as well as Chicago, MLA, and APA.

You may open multiple RefWorks accounts so that you can easily share citations with other students for group projects or lab research.

 Go to the library's guide on citing sources -- RefWorks -- to learn how to register for RefWorks or click on the above logo if you are already a user.
