UC Libraries provides support for the following two citation & reference management tools: EndNote and RefWorks. Use the Navigation Bar on the left to access the UC Libraries' EndNote or RefWorks (Legacy & NEW) websites, a workshop calendar and even comparison tables and RSS feeds for citation and reference management tools.
The answer to this question really depends on your personal situation, environment and preferences. Both ot the Citation & Reference Management tools supported by UC (EndNote and RefWorks) are excellent products. EndNote X8 is the latest version of EndNote. The UC Libraries currently supports two versions of RefWorks (Legacy & NEW). However, if you select RefWorks as your new citation and reference management tool, we recommend that you select the NEW version of RefWorks.
Either EndNote or RefWorks will likely satisfy most, if not all, of your requirements. However, you are welcome to review the "Comparison Tables" page to compare features of EndNote, RefWorks and other Citation & Reference Management tools.
