How do I cite sources (or make a bibliography)?Need to build a bibliography and you're not sure how to make a citation for your books and articles? Try the following resources for guidance or assistance:
Let the Database Make a Citation For YouWhen you're searching in Articles & More, Books & More, or our individual article databases you can find a citation in the format you need. In the Books and More library catalog, look for the Cite link to show the item you're looking forward formatted for APA, MLA, Chicago, Harvard, and Turabian. In Articles & More or other EBSCOhost databases (e.g., Academic Search Complete), you'll also see a Cite choice when you view an individual article that will format citations in several styles. Most of our other databases have their own internal citation formatters as well.
