Citation Generators

These websites may assist you in building citations for your bibliographies / references page. Please note that citation generators rely on the user’s input and can only follow patterns set by their programmers. They cannot correct inaccurate or incomplete information and may not be using the most recent edition of the style manual required for your assignment. 

Always check your citations against the official style manual to make sure they are correct before copying and pasting them into your paper.
