Citation/Bibliography Tools

Citation tools, or bibliographic management software, can save you lots of time by keeping track of your sources and formatting your bibliographies.

If you need additional assistance with any of these citation tools, please visit or call Laney Library Reference Desk at (510) 464-3495.

Citations within Library Databases

  • Many of the library's databases will provide you with a citation for each article that you find.
  • Click on an article title and look for the Cite button (for example)  cite button or some articles provide a citation at the bottom of the page.
  • Please remember to check your citations before you turn in your works cited (MLA) or references list (APA)!
