How to Generate a Citation in the Databases

Many of our article databases and the EWU Library Catalog have a citation generator. Accuracy varies. You still need to know your style, but it's certainly easier to copy/paste the MLA citation and correct any errors.

EBSCOhost Databases

You need to be viewing the full record (click on the hyperlinked title), then click the Cite button on the far right. You can also have the citation included in the record emailed to you by choosing Include when sending: Citation Format, and choose MLA. On rare occasions, I've seen the author in ALLCAPS because that's how it was in the EBSCOhost record.

EWU Library Catalog

Click the quotation mark icon citation icon in the EWU Library Catalog then choose MLA. Note: The author format isn't consistently accurate, and it doesn't include URLs to the full article.
