Using Database Citing Tools

This guide will show you how to use the built-in citation tools in the library databases. Choose a database name or database company in the navigation menu for instructions on how to find and use the citation generators.

A note about citing tools: Be careful when using citations generated by the library databases. Carefully review capitalization and punctuation. It is important that you know the basics of what your citation format requires so that you can correct any issues with the generated citations. Consult the resources listed in Research 101: Citations to familiarize yourself with your citation format. You will also typically need to double space and format your citation with a hanging indent in your bibliography or works cited list.
