Sample Citators online

Some examples

Simple Citation Builders

A handful of universities and other organizations have developed their own citation generators, which build citations from information that you enter about the resource. You may want to try out several of these tools. You can also find more of them through Google.

Bibliographic Management Tools

Bibliographic management tools help you organize your research by providing article links, complete bibliographic metadata and folders for organizing your research by topic. You might consider using one of these tools if you're conducting a major research project, such as a thesis or dissertation.

Zotero is a free tool that lives on your web browser. It lets you collect, organize, cite and share your sources. You can also access your sources from mulitple computers. 

EndNote is similar to Zotero but has a few more features. EndNote is a piece of software that you must purchase. RefWorks is another software package for purchase, which is similar in some ways to EndNote.

Built-in Citators

Most library databases contain a link for each article labeled "cite" or "cite this." You can click on these links to get a pre-generated citation from the database.

EBSCO cite feature

In EBSCO databases, look for the "cite" icon. This can be found under "tools" to the right of each article record.
