Many databases and article collections, plus many e-books, will automatically create citations for whichever article or chapter you are viewing.
Look for a "Cite This" or "Citation" button on the record for the article or chapter you are viewing.
1. Search in a library database and select an article that looks interesting.
2. Look for a "Cite This" button or icon.
3. Find the format you need, for example, MLA. Copy and paste the citation it into your list of References.
Examples of citation buttons:
EBSCOhost databases ProQuest databases JSTOR
(e.g., Academic Search Premier) (e.g, Newsstand)
