CITING SOURCES RESEARCH GUIDE: Quick Citing in Databases

This guide provides information on citing your sources in some of the most commonly used citation formats: APA, MLA, ASA and Chicago.

Automatic Citing from Databases

Most databases will provide citations for individual articles, essays, or books you are viewing. They may also allow you to export the citations to a citation manager, such as Zotero or EndNote.

 NOTE: ALWAYS double-check the citation for accuracy.

Look for a "Cite This" or "Citation" button on the record for the article or chapter you are viewing. Not all databases have this link.
