Scholarly Research Services

We provide the following services to researchers:

Citation management

Bibliographic information can be managed electronically through EndNote, Zotero or Mendeley. Northwestern licenses EndNote citation management software for all students, faculty and staff. Zotero and Mendeley are free, open source bibliographic managers. The Libraries provides workshops and online guides to using these tools. Find a workshop or guide.


We offer support to the Northwestern community on copyright and fair use in scholarly research, publishing, teaching and other areas.

Contact Liz Hamilton, Copyright Librarian, with specific questions or to set up a consultation, or visit our Copyright LibGuide for more information.

Data management

We can assist with data management and data management planning including help with funding agency requirements.

Digital humanities

We offer consultation and collaboration services for humanities faculty and graduate students interested in digital forms of research, teaching and publication.

We digitize images, documents, maps and manuscripts from books, slides, negatives and flat art for faculty and graduate students. Request scanning.

Open access

We advise researchers on outlets to make the published results of federally-funded research freely available to the public and support open access publication with the Northwestern Open Access Fund.
