I am a third year PhD student in Library and Information Science. I came back to school to do my MLIS in 2019 and citation management was a major source of stress. I was introduced to Zotero early on and have been an advocate of citation management ever since. I have tried endless alternatives including EndNote, Mendeley, and PaperPile and while they all have their strengths, I always come back to Zotero. I am so grateful to have learned about citation management software so early on in my studies as I have been able to build the skills and competencies to manage very large quantities of academic writing as I work through different phases of my dissertation. I have learned a lot the hard way so you don’t have to!
