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.
This software program allows you to import citations from our research databases and then easily create in-text citations and bibliographies in your research papers, in the style of your choosing (MLA, APA, Turabian, etc.).
To obtain a copy of EndNote on CD (for either PC or Mac), contact the IT Help Desk located in Geisel Library.
The 16th edition (2010) of the Chicago Manual of Style is the most current edition in use, and features two style formats: Author/Date and Notes/Bibliography. Be sure to pick one style and use it consistently throughout your paper.
