What is a bibliographic management tool and why do I want it?

Bibliographic management tools are tools that help you organize, manage, and cite the sources that you've found during your research.  They can be great for so many things:

  • Keeping track of those articles you found.
  • Letting you search for a source that you've found by whatever criteria you'd like.
  • Keeping annotations and notes about those articles.
  • Allowing you to group articles by whatever you'd like.
  • Automatically creating citations and bibliographies in your preferred style (yes, that includes APA 6th)
