Resources for students in CEE 700

Designing your citation management system

Every researcher accumulates information sources and will eventually need a system to keep track of them.  Some use a purely paper system, including notecards or handwritten notes and files.  Others use a purely digital, software based system maintained in cloud storage or on a local drive.  No system is perfect for everyone.
