Citation Generators

There are various online tools that will generate both in-text and bibliographic citations.  Listed below are some helpful websites and tools that can create citations from your source.  However, it is important to keep in mind that these tools are not fool-proof.  Some may not be using the current style manual edition, and some may incorrectly generate a citation.  It is up to you to double-check the generated citation with the latest style manual.
