7 Great Bibliography and Citation Tools for Students

Yesterday while we were working on the post entitled 5 Great Learning Tools for students and as we reviewed EasyBib, we decided to include here a post that would feature a list of some important bibliography and citation tools. As teachers and educators, you know how hard students struggle  to properly use a quote, citation, or list bibliography items. This is even more serious when it comes to writing formal research papers.

The tools included below are among the best web services you can find online to help with the integration of bibliography and citations into documents. They cover different style formats including APA, MLA, and Chicago. Check them out and share with us your suggestions


1- Bibme




This is the fully automatic bibliography maker that auto-fills. It is the easiest way to build a works cited page.




2- Easy Bib





This is another great tool for students to help them with citing their bibliographies it includes things such as radio shows, recorded music, and even works of arts from museums.

This one helps students and professional researchers to properly credit the information that they use. Its  primary goal is to make it easy for student researchers to cite their information sources.
