Keeping track of what databases you have searched, what keywords and questions you used in each database, and the results from each search can be a time-consuming and tedious enterprise, but it is critical. UNC-CH supports several online citation management programs that can help you organize and manage your literature search results.
Citation management software programs have some major advantages over card files and spreadsheets, though these are also valid options.
UNC Libraries' subscription to RefWorks will end August 31, 2017.
