Creating Computer Generated Citations:
Formatting Book Citations:
Use Library OneSearch to identify the book you want to cite. Click on the book title and on the next page choose Cite in the right column. Note that computer generated citations are not always perfect. Have a formatting guide available to check on accuracy of the formatting.
Formatting Article Citations:
Book references can be formatted in APA or MLA by ISBN lookup. References in other formats can generated by adding information to the required boxes in an online form.
Once again, computer generated citations may not be entirely reliable. You can also fill in information manually and generate a citation. In some cases, you may need to consult the print version of the guide. These are available in the library. You are also welcome to ask a librarian or contact the writing centre for help.
If you are using EndNote to manage your references, see our EndNote Guide. See the Database Exports tab for information on downloading to EndNote from various databases.
