Resources for health informatics research

Managing your references

There are many programs that will help you manage your references.  In addition to EndNote, there is the References feature in Microsoft Word and competing software programs such as Zotero or Mendeley.   MU's Division of Information Technology (DoIT) supports EndNote.   


Zotero is a bibliographic manager software that collects, organizes and formats your citations.  A competitor to EndNote, it's benefits are: it's free, it's portable across devices, it's pretty good at capturing webpages (e.g. CDC)
