Managing your sources

Have a system for keeping track of your sources! Make sure that you have full citation information for each source.
  • Link rot (don't copy/paste URLs from the address bar when using library databases; look for persistent link option on results page)
  • Losing folder/search history if you close browser window


Strategies for managing sources

  • Built-in Word features
  • Copy/paste permalinks into an email or document
  • Save PDFs to your computer or the cloud (make sure they have full citation information)
  • Email articles/citations to self using database email feature
  • Use a citation manager like Zotero
  • Optional: Create an account in the database to save items/searches across sessions (consider privacy; throwaway Google account?)
