Excellent Guides To Help Students Make Appropriate Citations and Bibliographies April 12, 2014 EasyBib helps educators provide students with the tools they need to do credible and ethical research, while allowing them to track student progress and understanding before they hand in their final paper. EasyBib has also been recently integrated into Google Docs allowing students to easily and properly cite their resources with one single click. Today, as I was browsing through EasyBib's most frequently asked questions I came across some really interesting tips to help teachers and students with the citing of their sources and bibliographies. From citing a tweet to how to evaluate websites, these resources cover almost everything students need for developing their citation skills.
In Chicago style, footnotes or endnotes are used to reference pieces of work in the text. To cite from a source a superscript number is placed after a quote or a paraphrase. Citation numbers should appear in sequential order. Each number then corresponds to a citation a footnote or to an endnote.

When researching online, it's easy to derail your train of thought by switching back and forth between web browser and word processor. Citelighter stays with you, so you can log your findings as you go. Tabbed browsing is the research equivalent of speed dating. You may read many sources at once, but it's doubtful you'll read them all well. Citelighter lets you pore through pages, strip out the important bits, and move on while maintaining your focus.
Cite perfectly. 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.
I have used reference database software for many years. RefWorks is the most intuitive and least problematic of any software that I have used. It permits me to capture the reference information for the online resources more effectively than other tools.
Yesterday while we were working on the post entitled 5 Great Learning Tools for students and as we reviewed EasyBib, we decided to include here a post that would feature a list of some important bibliography and citation tools. As teachers and educators, you know how hard students struggle to properly use a quote, citation, or list bibliography items. This is even more serious when it comes to writing formal research papers.
