Disciplinary Research Support

Mann Library offers a variety of research consultation services for students, faculty, and staff. These are in-depth, customized, one-on-one meetings to discuss resources and search strategies for assignments, papers, presentations, theses, and doctoral dissertations.

Citation Management

Citation management tools allow a user to organize and retrieve information, such as citations for books, articles, and websites, by interfacing with library databases. The citation manager then works with word processing software to insert properly formatted footnotes or citations into a paper and create a properly formatted bibliography.
