Lane Library recommends Zotero, which can be downloaded free of charge, to help collect, manage, cite, and share bibliographic references.

Oncology-Related Databases

Reference Management Software

Reference management tools help you collect, manage, cite, and share bibliographic references. These tools can be used to automatically generate both in-text citations and bibliographies, organize PDFs, and share references between team members. Lane Library recommends Zotero, which can be downloaded and used free of charge, for most users.


Reference Management Software helps you:

  • Save time
  • Stay organized
  • Easily save references from databases and the web
  • Create citations automatically
  • Quickly change citation styles


Zotero is a free reference manager produced by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Notable features include web browser integration, online syncing, generation of in-text citations, footnotes, and bibliographies, as well as integration with the word processors like  Microsoft Word and Google Docs.

Lane Library recommends using the Zotero desktop client alongside the Zotero connector, a bookmarklet that will allow you to save materials from the web to Zotero in a single click as well as Zotfile, a free plugin that automatically renames and manages PDFs and other attachments.

EndNote is a reference manager produced by Clarivate Analytics. If you routinely work on large evidence synthesis projects and use certain features within Covidence, Endnote may be preferable to other reference management options.

A limited version of Endnote is available as part of Lane Library's subscription to Web of Science, but the standalone version must be purchased through the Stanford Bookstore.
