Library DIY (beta)
Using citation generators
Use a Citation Generator
With a citation generator, you can produce a citation in your selected format that you can copy and paste into your paper. The Library catalog, as well as many of the library databases, has a built in citation generator, which creates a citation for the resource in various citation styles.
Select the title of the resource in the Library catalog, then click on the Citation link to generate citations in four different styles: APA (6th edition), Chicago/Turabian (16th Edition), Harvard 1, and MLA (8th edition).
In Ebsco-host databases, select the Cite link on the right hand column of the web page. This link generates a citation for several citation styles.
Google Scholar also has a built-in citation generator. Select the quotation marks underneath the record to generate a citation for several citation styles.
Make sure to check your generated citations at the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL).
Here is the video, Using Automatic Citation Generators, to review these three citation generators:
