Citation Management Tools

This guide includes information about citation management tools, or applications used to organize your references, generate bibliographies, and collaborate with others.

Generate Citations from ASU Library One Search

This section demonstrates how to generate citations, copy them, and paste them into your document for immediate use, without using a citation manager. You should always check all citation elements for missing or erroneous parts.

Library One Search

  1. Once you locate an item in Library One Search, use the Quotation Mark icon to open a citation panel. You can format your citation in a number of styles (APA, Chicago/Turabian, Harvard, MLA) and then save it to your clipboard.
  2. Once you are done generating the citation, you can find it in your clipboard. Copy the citation (or citations) and paste it into your document.

 


Generate Citations from Citation Services Websites

Website Services for Generating Citations (mostly free)

EasyBib, BibMe, Citation Machine: The same company owns all three of these websites, which generate citations for free in the MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian styles for a long list of source types. Paying users have access to many additional citation styles and can save their bibliographies online.

Make Citation: Generates citations in the following styles: MLA, APA, Chicago, Turabian, IEEE, ASAS, SSF, Harvard, and Vancouver. However, it covers a very limited number of source types.

Tweet2Cite: A free utility that can take the URL of any tweet and generate citations in either MLA or APA format.

ZoteroBib: Generates citations in thousands of styles that can be saved in a bibliography from any computer or device without creating an account or installing any software. 

 

These citation generators are not integrated with ASU Library's article databases or catalog.
