Is there software to help organize my references?
Yes! EndNote and RefWorks are licensed for use by current NU faculty, staff, and students. Zotero is an open source product. Any of these programs can help you collect and manage your references, and auto-format citations and bibliographies in your papers.
For more details on each program, see the introductory pages for RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero
More about citations
When you install the EndNote software to your computer, it comes with a plugin for Word, called Cite While You Write. This plugin will allow you to add references directly to your papers as you're writing them.
