Citation Generators

Many subject databases have citation generators built into their interface.  Some subject-specific databases have discipline-specific citation generators. They often follow a similar process to generating a citation from the library catalog, OneSearch, as demonstrated below.

Generating Citations in OneSearch

When you find a source that you want to cite:

  1. Click on the Citation (") icon for that result 
  2. Select your citation style
  3. Copy the citation that is generated by clicking on Copy the citation to clipboard button
  4. Paste the citation to your document
  5. Check the citation with your style guide and fix any errors.  Pay particular attention to capitalization and punctuation.
