THE CITE BUTTON

The majority of the Library's e-resources can generate a single citation for you.

Places to look for the Cite Button or other Citation Tools in E-Resources:

  • The right-hand menu on the article abstract page.
  • At the top of the results list.
  • Immediately under each citation in the results list.
  • At the very bottom of an article or article abstract page.

What is EndNote Basic?

 

EndNote is a software program that works with Microsoft Word to automatically format in-text citations and end-of-paper reference lists with your chosen style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.). The "Basic" edition is a limited, online-based version that is free to use.

CITATION STYLES AND FORMATS

Journals, professors, and disciplines often have their own methods for formatting citations. It is always a good idea to ask your professor which citation style they prefer you use.
