Formatting Tools

There are a number of tools which may help you get started with formatting, including citation managers, EBSCO databases, the Infohawk+ catalog, and other citation generators. These resources are intended to get you started, but there may be errors,  especially with journal titles, article titles, and retrieval information for electronic sources. 

If you decide to use a referencing tool, review all formatted references carefully to ensure accuracy.
