      Citation Creators

      Many research databases offer "cite this item" features, which generate citations in the most popular styles (MLA, APA, etc.) for any source that you find. You can then copy-paste these directly into your papers.

      WARNING: Be sure to double-check these citations against the rules for proper style, since they are NOT always accurate.
