Any Topic Guide: Citing Sources

This guide provides general resources and tips for doing research across all disciplines.

Style Guides

Citations formatted for you

For undergraduates (or those citing less than 50 sources) we suggest: free web citation creation helpers such as Noodletools Express , Easybib, or BibMe. Some library research databases provided by vendors like ProQuest, Ebsco, and CSA will also format the citations for you when you save or print them.

For more intense research, UofL now has a site license to EndNote, Reference Manager, and EndNoteWeb. These are software packages that help you manage and format your citations and are most appropriate for graduate students and faculty. See the Citation Management Software page for more information.

In either case, ALWAYS check the citation provided by these programs against the official citation manual for the style you are using (MLA, APA, Turabian, etc.).
