Citation management (aka reference management) tools enable you to:
Import citations from databases, catalogs, PDFs etc., often through a browser plug-in
Store and organize references and/or PDFs in either a desktop or online account
Find duplicate citations; add notes or annotate your citations
Create bibliographies and in-text citations in Word and sometimes Google Docs using different citation styles
Share your digital library and collaborate with colleagues
