Citation and Research Management Tools: Quick Citations

An information resource on citation and reference management tools




KnightCite from Calvin College

While Calvin College’s KnightCite citation creator only covers MLA 8, APA, and Chicago, it provides forms to help you make citations for a wide range of resources in print, online, and in multimedia and communication.

That means this tool will not only help you cite a book, article, or website, it can help you cite a cartoon, advertisement, musical composition, radio or TV program, email, and more.
