EasyBib EDU Sunsetting Frequently Asked Questions

What is happening?

On August 31, 2018, we will retire EasyBib EDU, our subscription product for institutions. It will not be replaced. Fortunately, will continue to provide free citation services in MLA format for everyone.

Those who need services for APA, Chicago, and other citation styles are encouraged to check out BibMe and Citation Machine. Both offer free citation creation services in several citation styles and for a number of different source types.

Why is EasyBib EDU begin sunsetted?

We are retiring our institutional services to focus efforts on our core citation functionality and complementary writing tools. We believe this gives us the best opportunity to improve students’ writing skills.
