Citation Resources in Databases

Many of our article databases will help you format your citations by giving you a citation that you can copy and paste to your Works Cited page or into NoodleTools using the quick cite "Copy & Paste" feature within a citation template.


EBSCO databases (e.g., MasterFile Premier, Science Reference Center, History Reference Center) - When you click the title of an article, look for the "Tools" on the right side and select "Cite."


ProQuest databases (e.g., SIRS Knowledge Source or SIRS Discoverer) - After you have selected an article, click the "Cite" link at the top right above the article.


You should always double-check the results you get, since sometimes the citations need some clean-up.
