How to Cite Your Sources: Auto-Citation

University Libraries Databases with Automatic Citation Generators

Some databases provide automatic citation formatting at the article level. Several articles can also be selected to create a List of References. The Libraries do not guarantee compliance with the citation styles.
Check the manuals for the correct format if you are in doubt.
