Citelighter A Great Research Tool

Share this post:  
The hardest part in writing a research paper is the bibliography section. Those of you who have already gone through this would know what I am talking about. Citing the bibliography entries in the right way and gathering all the information pertaining to it can take much more time than you ever think. In fact it takes me more time than writing the paper itself.

Today I will be introducing you to a very handy web tool that works on Firefox ( sorry for Chrome users and I am one of them too ). Citelighter can grab all the bibliographical information from a given webpage and store them on your account. This means that you need to have an account there which is pretty easy to do and takes only a couple of minutes.

Once you have it installed on your toolbar then you just highlight the part of the webpage you are interested in and Citelighter will do the job for you.Watch the video below to learn more.

In case you want to teach your students how to cite resources properly then I recomend that you read " 6 free tools to easily Cite resources for students and resources "
