Tools to help you gather, organize, and cite your research sources:

The library supports two tools for organizing your research sources: Endnote and Zotero.  Endnote is a software program which is a free download for Georgia State faculty, staff and students. Zotero is a software program that is free for everyone. Both tools are very good and quite comparable.

What is a literature review?

A literature review is a collection of prior research conducted on a topic.    It is a central component of the research process when writing articles, theses, or dissertations as it provides a foundation for your research.
