  • This slide show is out of date. EasyBib has updated and improved their interface and features. The slide show will give you an overall idea of how the website works, but it is not current (it was done in 2008). Thanks for tuning in!

  • @guest30ba349, easybib is free for MLA, but they charge a very small fee for APA (I guess because it's more complex?). It's not very expensive, considering the convenience and the features, really. But if you want free APA you might try bibme.com -- I don't know for sure, but I think they have free APA style. Just be careful that they truly generate correct format. Easybib's been at it longer and probably has corrected more errors in its formulas & program.
