Scholar Library, a new Google citation management service

Google recently deployed a citation management tool called Scholar Library that integrates with Google Scholar. Scholar is a web search engine that indexes the full text of scholarly literature of most peer-reviewed online journals of Europe and America’s largest scholarly publishers, plus scholarly books and other non-peer reviewed journals.

The new Library feature allows you to save articles directly from the Scholar search page, organize them by topic, and search your collection. If you have set up a public Scholar profile, you’ll be able to import references to all the articles you’ve written, plus all the sources you’ve cited in those articles.

Now that Scholar Library is active, each Scholar search result is equipped with an option labeled “Save” that will save the result to your Google account’s library. Access your account’s library by clicking the “My Library” option found in the left margin of the Scholar interface. See the circled examples of “Save” and the rectangular example of “My Library” in the image below.

There are also several other citation managers that you can use to organize your workflow – Mendeley, RefWorks, EndNote, and Zotero to name a few.
