Citation Generators

How can a citation generator help you?

Citation generators use online forms to create a citation in various formats such as MLA, APA, Chicago, and more.  You (the researcher) type your bibliographic data into the form and the site generates a citation in the format requested.  It will also correctly sort and alphabetize your list when you collect and store more then one citation.

Remember - you are always responsible for the accuracy of your citations.  Citation generators are convenient to use, but may not always be 100% accurate.  Also remember that the citation and the Works Cited/References list you create is only as accurate as the data you input!
