Organizing Your Research

A guide to citation and bibliography management tools that help you collect, store, and organize your research.

Citing Using Library Search

Library Search (the main discovery tool of Turchin Library and Howard-Tilton Memorial Library) has a built-in citation tool. It offers machine-created citations in APA, Chicago, and MLA styles. Please note: as these citations are created on-the-fly by a machine from the information provided in the record, you may find errors and also have to reformat the citation in your paper (indentation, spacing, and fonts).

To get a citation:

  • Click on "Details" in your desired record.
  • On the right-hand side of the record details, click "Save & Cite."
  • Select "Citation."
  • Select your desired style and click "Select Citation Text."
  • Paste into your working document.
