RefWorks Alternatives

Guide for Zotero, Mendeley and EndNote citation sources

RefWorks cancellation

The Mardigian Library is cancelling its subscription to RefWorks on June 30, 2019.  High subscription cost and low usage factored in our decision to cancel. 

However, there are alternatives for citation management software, both free and subscription based.

  • Zotero:  This is free and fee software.  Link to it here:
  • Mendeley: Mendeley has both a free and fee version. Link to it here:
  • EndNote:  Also free and fee version.  The limited free version is through the library's subscription to Web of Science.  You can also purchase (at a discount) the full version from the UM Tech Shop.  Go to the Software category and then the OnTheHub category for EndNote purchase.

The (UM) Taubman Health Sciences library has a comparison guide for each product.  See Citation Management Comparison link below
