Great Citation Site!

If you're still unsure what you're doing, we highly recommend the Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue!


What about Easybib?

Nothing's wrong with some of the free citation sites out there, if you remember:

  • The burden's on you to make sure a bibliographic citation is correct.
  • Sometimes professors require citation styles that are variations on an existing style--again, the burden's on you to know what's expected

Bearing those things in mind, some highly rated sites include:


Citation Guides

 There are hundreds of citation styles out there, but these are some very common ones.

Humanities MLA Chicago
Sciences ACS
Social Sciences APA ASA

Citation Software - RefWorks

What is RefWorks?

A free (for UConn folks) Web-based software that enables you to

  • Collect citations (title, author, source, etc.) directly from databases, library catalogs, and Web sites
  • Create bibliographies from the sources you've collected in any format you need (APA, Chicago, AMA, MLA, Turabian, and hundreds more)
Where do I get it?
Easy.  Just go to and or click directly to Create or Log in to your RefWorks account
What if I need help using it?
No problem.  Check out these RefWorks videos that cover both setting up an account and using RefWorks with common research tools such as databases. We also offer periodic Refworks workshops.
