Does Google have a reference manager?

Google Scholar provides some basic reference management features that can help you organize your academic resources to a certain extent.

In Google Scholar, you can create a personal library where you can save and organize articles, papers, and other scholarly materials. While it doesn't provide the same level of citation management and document integration as dedicated reference managers, it can still be useful for keeping track of your research materials.

However, if you require advanced citation formatting, document integration, and collaboration features, you might consider using a dedicated reference manager alongside Google Scholar.
