Citation Manager Guide

Salisbury University is pleased to offer our students and faculty two choices for citation manager software: EndNote Basic and Zotero.


Although EasyBib offers a free tier, the SU Libraries have purchased an instituional account so students and faculty can use all of the site's features. To ensure that you are using the correct tier, make sure you access EasyBib using the link on the library homepage or by clicking here.
