Quick Citation Examples


Database Citation Features

Our EBSCO and ProQuest databases from GALILEO will format your citation for you. As with all computer-generated citations, you need to proofread them carefully.

Online Sites

There are many internet sites advertising free formatting of bibliography or works cited pages. If you use them, remember that they depend on you to choose the right citation type for your material, give them the right types of information, and they are only as good as their programming! It is always wise to check what they format for you against the appropriate style guide.
