Database Citation Tools

Most online databases include an automated citation feature that allows you to generate citations in most of the commonly used documentation styles.  Click the title link for the article you want to cite and look for links to Cite, Cite This or Citation Tools, for example, from within the full record.  Please note that no online citation generator is 100% accurate.  Please be sure to check your citations to make sure that they include all of the correct information, in the proper order and with the proper capitalization and punctuation!

Watch the video below to see how to use the Cite feature in EBSCO databases. Use the 'f' key to view the video full screen.
