Why Use Citation Management Software?

Citation management software allows you to track your sources as you use them rather than waiting until the end of a project to retype a separate bibliography or Table of Authorities. This software also auto formats your citations so that you spend less time flipping through the Blue Book for citations rules. While citation management software is a time-saver, you must still REVIEW each citation for accuracy before submitting it in class or to the court because no software can guarantee 100% accuracy.
