A flexible program, it will both import and export different bibliographic file types, like EasyBib and EndNote, so you can share and import research from your colleagues. In addition, you can generate citations in multiple format styles, like APA, MLA, and Chicago.
When you are trying to determine your topic, you can save lists of articles, websites, movies, etc. and refer back to them. This is great when you are putting together a paper and you realize you need to cite a resource that you originally did not think would be so vital to your research.
