Bibliographic Citation Software
This type of software helps to manage your citations while doing research and develop a library of resources if you choose. When writing your paper, RefWorks makes it easy to insert notes and format them in the proper style. The University Library nows subscribes to the RefWorks product. You will retain access to RefWorks after you graduate since RefWorks uses your SCU email address for authentication purposes. This assumes that the Library continues to subscribe to RefWorks.
As an alternative, Zotero is a free product that anyone can use. It is not as powerfual as RefWorks, but might meet your needs for a citation manager.
The PsycINFO database offers a great opportunity to manage your research. You can place articles into a folder, save your searches, and create notes about your research. The information remains in a folder indefinitely so you can access it any time. You also can create multiple folders for different research projects. This is a tool I highly recommend.
