Citation managers capture citation information directly from records and sources. You can use them to collect and organize citations from library and web resources. They integrate with word processing software, so you can easily insert already formatted in-text citations and bibliographies into papers.
Beyond these general functions, citation managers offer different options for storing and annotating full text, sharing research with colleagues, and finding new research.
Mendeley and Zotero are two recommended citation managers that will make it easy to cite your sources in APA style. See the Citation Manager Guide for more information about installing these programs on your computer and for tutorial videos on using them.
For good examples on how to formulate your citations in APA format and put together your references list see the article examles below, and for examples for books and other sources go to the Purdue OWL.
Also look for the style guide for APA in Moon Library:
