The citation needs of many undergraduate students may be met by using free citation generators, such as  EasyBib, BibMe, and NoodleTools Express.  These types of Generators can be a good place to start.


EndNote gives users the ability to import, store, and organize references and format them in thousands of different citation styles. It also allows users to store and annotate pdf files. EndNote includes a plug-in for word processing programs for formatting in-citations and bibliographies.
