Using specialized software for handling your secondary literature will definitely make your life as a student easier.

Citavi is a professional software for handling secondary literature. It is only available for Windows and the University no longer provides a campus license. Switching to Zotero is recommended.

Zotero is a freeware alternative to Citavi that runs on all major operating systems and is recommended by the Bamberg University Library.
