Global Online Students

Discover the resources and services from the University Libraries that will be most useful to Global Online students.

Help Citing Sources

Whether you need help with APA, MLA, or another citation format, the Libraries have you covered. Our Citing Sources guide provides a variety of resources for popular citation styles (APA, MLA, Chicago) as well as discipline-specific styles. The home page of this guide also includes citation creators and guides for annotated bibliographies.

You can find our Citing Sources guide in the General Guides section of our Guides page.


Cite Tool

Many of our research databases include a Cite tool that will generate a citation for you. This is usually found in the Tools on the right-hand side of the page when you are viewing an article (EBSCO databases). In other databases, it may appear at the top of the page. When you use the Cite tool, all you need to do is copy the citation in the correct format you need and paste it into your document. 



NOTE: Always double-check any citations generated by a database. These citations are not always 100% accurate, so you will want to use an authoritative source such as a style manual or a credible website (Purdue OWL, Excelsior OWL, etc.) to ensure your citations are accurate. Most often there are mistakes with capitalization and punctuation, so pay careful attention to those areas.
