					             Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library

Computer software is available to manage all aspects of building a database of bibliographic
citations for subsequent citing and bibliography creation in an article, essay, manuscript, thesis or
other scholarly publication. These programs generally allow automated transfer of citations from
remote sources and work with word processing software to allow easy and time saving completion
of the final document. They are also called bibliography formatting software, personal bibliographic
managers, or reference management programs.

The most highly rated desktop programs used in the health sciences are Reference Manager and
EndNote. They contain many similar features, as well as some that are unique. They may be
purchased through the University of Manitoba bookstore with student and faculty pricing. The
University of Manitoba Libraries has also recently obtained a license for the web based RefWorks
( ) program.

The Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library offers introductory and advanced seminars as well
as individual assistance for both Reference Manager and EndNote. The seminar schedule is posted
on the NJM web site. Reference Manager 10 is also available for public access in the NJM
Paterson computer lab.
