Q. Where can I find a citation generator?


If you go to any Libguide or use the Research Help link on the library homepage you will find a tab titled "How to Cite Sources".  Once you click on that tabe there should be a box labeled "Citation Generators"which will provide you with a few online citation generators.

ALWAYS double check the citations that these generators give you--they are helpful tools, but many times there are minor gramatical, punctuation, etc. errors on the citations provided by these services.

There are also various citation style guides to MLA, APA, Chicago/Turabian, etc. available on these page whichwill show you the correct method to cite a book, article, or other materials in the box labeled"Citation Style Guides.
