Using EndNote is one way to manage your references. The software will keep track of your references in a library you create.
When you are searching Library databases you will be able to export your results to EndNote.
PDF copies of articles (if they have associated metadata), can be imported into EndNote which will complete the reference details automatically.
When you have references in your library you will be able to insert the references into your Word documents (Cite While You Write) to create in-text references and a reference list that will automatically be formated in the reference style of your choice.
