A note about Purdue OWL: it has so much great information - but they now promote a citation generator at the top of their webpages. That is an ad - ignore it. I've tried it and it's not correct. If you are going to use a citation generator - see the software examples below.
Citatation management software helps you organize your research and can generate bibliographies (sweet!).
They take some initial work to upload/import your citations and then future maintenance work.
Below is a Word doc that outlines the differences between the major citation management systems:
Below are links to research guides for each of these citation management systems. In those research guides, you will learn how to sign up, how to use it, and where you can find other resources.
