Transcript

  • 1. Citing Sources Tips and Tricks to Make Life Easier
  • 2. Creating citations is easier than ever before, since many databases include options for citing. This presentation will show you 3 easy ways to cite: directly out of the catalog, out of many databases, and through a citation generator.
  • 3. ECU Libraries Catalog To cite a book from the catalog, first locate the book in the catalog.
  • 4. Click the option on the lower left to Cite this Item. A new window opens with options for citing in APA, MLA, and more. The citation is ready to copy in to your paper.
  • 5. Citing from a Database ECU Libraries subscribe to over 400 databases, and not all databases work the same. However, many of them have the option to create a citation.
  • 6. You can do this in one of two ways. If you find the article and wish to simply see the citation, many databases have a button that simply says “Cite.”
  • 7. The other way of doing this is to use a Folder. First, find articles that you will use for your paper. As you locate the articles, click Add to Folder, which will add your chosen articles to a temporary holding place—kind of like a shopping cart on a web store. Look for something like this: Note: OneSearch on the library homepage also functions in this way.
  • 8. Send to Email After you are done with your research in the database, click in to the folder and choose the option to Email. You will be able to specify a citation style at this time. The citation will come with the article in an email.
  • 9. But Wait! What if I did not do this during my research? Is there anything I can do?
  • 10. Citation Generators Citation Generators are online forms that allow you to fill in information about an article and get a citation in the correct style.
  • 11. Links Some citation generators include NCSU’s Citation Generator and Knight Cite. Click these links to be taken to a citation generator. If you have questions, Ask a Librarian!
