|Managing what you find can be difficult, especially if you're working on a big piece of work that relies on a lot of references. Reference management software lets you keep track of what you've found: you can group and organise your references, keep notes, and store pdfs online for easy access. You can even automatically cite your references as you write up your work.
See the Reference Management Skills Guide for more information.

Consider how much you can copy for private study, for an assessment, or to share with classmates, students or colleagues. Decide how best to protect your own copyright when you communicate your work.
