Creating Citations

Create a citation in TechCat and most databases:
  • Look for the "cite/export" tool
  • Select the appropriate citation style to create the reference (may appear in a pop-up box)
  • Copy and paste it into your Word document - you may have to create a hanging indent or adjust spacing, etc.
  • Check the citation for accuracy 

What is RefWorks?

In a world of e-research, there are more data sources available than ever, which means researchers need highly efficient ways to manage vast amounts of information easily. RefWorks is a powerful online research management, writing and collaboration tool designed to help researchers at all levels easily gather, organize, store and share all types of information and to instantly generate citations and bibliographies.

Annotated Bibliographies

An annotated bibliography is NOT the same as compiling a Reference List or Works Cited page at the end of a research paper. The links below include the "basics" to help you create an annotated bibliography.
