Citation Generators

Citing sources can be easy when you use one of the free citation generators out on the Web (see links below) or within some of the databases.  Whatever citation generator you use, you will always need to understand enough about the citation style you are using (MLA, APA, etc) to check the accuracy of machine-generated citations, even those generated within a reputable library database like Academic Search Complete.  Use the secondary pages attached to the Citing Sources tab in this guide to see brief examples for the major citation styles.  To access these, mouse over the Citing Sources tab.
