Introduction to Citation Tools

Citation Management Tools can help you in keeping track of your sources, citing sources within your text, and creating a bibliography. EasyBib is a citaiton tool you can add to GoogleDocs simply by selecting it as an "Add-on." Another great tool is Zotero.

TIP: When using citation tools, you must check the citations with a relevant Style Guide because they do make mistakes, such as not formatting correctly or exporting the information incorrectly.
