MSIN 695 - Capstone Course: Information Systems Research Project Seminar: Managing Citations

Find library resources you can use for your Information Systems capstone course

Keep track of what you find!

Keeping track of sources as you go will save you time and effort. This can be as simple as saving a URL, but consider saving a full citation in you word processor. Further, you can arrange your citations based on sections/topics in your paper and begin to make notes or paraphrase information (annotated bibliography) under each citation.

Citation Managers are programs which allow you to save, organize, and format your citations efficiently. For your project you might instead decide to save citations in your preferred word processor. As a Touro student you have access to ProQuest RefWorks, a cloud based citation manager. Zotero is an open-source citation manager that you might be interested in using. Below are instructions on using RefWorks, but also see our guide:

Using RefWorks

Always sign up for RefWorks using your Touro student email at

Install the Save to RefWorks bookmark for easy citation capture. Remember that you have to have your browser's bookmark bar visible in order to use this tool

                               install the save to refworks button

Use the bookmark button to save all your sources: articles from databases, and even websites (if they are reliable sources). Alternatively, if you are using Gale and EBSCO databases, you can select your desired article, and click on either save or export to RefWorks.

When your sources are saved, you can assign them to specific folders in your RefWorks account. To create a new folder, simply click on the plus sign (+) under my folders, and choose a name for your new folder.
