Citing Help Direct from Databases!

Did you know that many of Kimbel Library's online databases provide help with citation styles right from your search screen? As soon as you find an article you want to cite in your paper, you can email or copy the correct citation for your works cited list. Here's how it works in Academic Search Premier:

1) Do a search and choose an article you like.
2) Click the title and look at the full record for the article.
3) Click the symbol that looks like a gold piece of paper

4) You'll see a screen like this with popular citation styles listed. Just choose which one you need for your class (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.). Easy!

You will find this option in many library databases, so if you look for the option, you will be able to save time on your works cited pages.
