Citation Generators

Citation Generators are web tools that assist students in creating bibliographic citations for print and electronic sources.

Citation Generators may differ slightly, but generally the steps are as follows:
  1. Click on the resource (source type) you want to cite.
  2. Complete the online form with information from your source. Only fill in the boxes that apply with information that is available.
  3. When you are done filling out the form, click a button to create the citation. Your citation will appear below or next to the online form.
  4. Continue this process for each of your sources. You may enter multiple citations without losing the prvious ones.
  5. When you have entered all your citations, sort them into alphabetical order. If your citation begins with quotation marks, move it from the beginning of the list to its proper alphabetical spot.
  6. After sorting, copy and paste the citations into a word processing document that you print or save.
