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.
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. The Geological Society of America (GSA) has a guide to citation styles. Other citation styles include the Chicago Manual of Style, Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), and the Modern Language Association (MLA) style.
Ask your professor which citation style you should use.
