Institutions that use "Harvard" style often have institution-specific requirements. Students at NCH London are directed to use the instructions on the Mendeley webpage linked above.

Citation Management Software
Learn how a citation management tool can make your research life easier.
What is a citation manager?
A citation manager is a piece of software that helps you collect and organize your research and create bibliographies and in-text citations. Citation managers generally offer a range of citation styles and features to choose from.
Which citation managers does the library support?
The Northeastern library supports EndNote, Mendeley, RefWorks and Zotero. We also support the use of BibTeX and LaTeX.
Which citation manager should I use?
While citation managers generally have the same basic functions, each one offers some specific features.
Our citation manager comparison chart (below) can help you identify the features that will work best for you. See also our tutorial on choosing a citation manager.
For help with citations and citation management software, please Ask a Librarian or make an appointment with a member of the Citation Management Team.
