Some of our database products allow you to format citations as you come across them during the search. Look for a link that says "Cite" or "Cite this".
|In Proquest, look for the "Cite This" link on the results listing page or after you have clicked on the title of an item.|
|In Ebscohost, look for the "Cite" link to the right after you have clicked on the title of an item.|
|The database then gives you a choice of styles (Proquest choices shown here).|
You can then highlight, copy and paste the formatted citation into your word processor.
If your are using Onesearch from the Library Home page, click on the title of an article to get the full record for that article. On the right will be the citation formated for APA, MLA, and Turabian/Chicago.
WARNING: The database companies do not guarantee that the citations are perfectly formatted. Double check the citations yourself. They often do NOT make the "Hanging Indent" required by the APA sytle. Some of our other database and e-journal products will have similar functions.
