      A great citation generator, EasyBib compiles your bibliographies and citations for you, saving you valuable time. You don’t need to create an account if you are using M.L.A., but Chicago or American Psychological Association (A.P.A.) style citations requires a paid account. EasyBib also offers an app for Internetwork Operating System (iOS) and Android, so you can cite your sources on the go.
    3. Zotero
      Zotero is a veteran and a completely free browser based plugin that helps you collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources. This tool lives right where you do your work, in the web browser itself. Whether you need to create footnotes, endnotes, in-text citations, or bibliographies, Zotero will do all the dirty work for you, leaving you free to focus on your writing. Create citations in Word and OpenOffice without ever leaving your word processor and add references to an email, a Google Doc, or some other editor simply by dragging one or more references out of Zotero. The only disadvantage? Zotero doesn't allow you to annotate a Portable Document Format (P.D.F.) document.
    4. BibMe
      The fully automatic bibliography maker that auto-fills. It's the easiest way to build a works-cited page, and it's free. Search for a book, article, website, or film, or enter the information yourself. Add it to your bibliography and continue citing to build your works cited list. Download your bibliography in M.L.A., A.P.A., Chicago, or Turabian format. BibMe is very easy to use, but you need to pay for a pro account to save your bibliographies.
