ProCite allows users to manage references from bibliographic databases such as ABI Inform, the Web of Science, Anthropological Literature, the MLA bibliography, or the catalogs of individual libraries. It can generate bibliographies, reading lists, and footnotes in a wide variety of styles, and because it links directly to word-processing programs such as Microsoft Word and Wordperfect, the software enables users to add and format citations to papers as they write.
The Columbia University Libraries have purchased a ProCite site license for the Columbia community. You can download the program for free.
