Citation Help Research Guide

Access to resources to assist with citation and writing

Tools to Help: Citation Generators

Create citations in APA, MLA, or Chicago format then copy and paste them into your bibliography.

Note -- As handy as these tools may be, remember that you must check each citation for completeness and accuracy according to the selected style format guidelines.

Tip -- some databases (such as EBSCO, ProQuest and Statista) offer a link to cite selected source(s). 


RefWorks allows you to collect, manage and organize research papers and documents.  You can read, annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with others by sharing collections. It has drag and drop capability and smart document recognition to upload documents and bibliographic metadata into your library as well as a feature that allows you to capture research from websites.
