Understanding citations and references


It’s been a long time since I was in school and we didn’t have word processing then!

I’m puzzled that I can’t seem to find direct “here’s what to do” around managing citations. I know that it can be a whole lot more automated with my computer. I get that Scrivener can grab links as references, but that doesn’t get the cite for the article. I’m working on a book and want to make sure I’m grabbing the info I need as I go along in the right format. I see that there are citation managers but I could really use a tut on how to use one with scrivener. Help?
