Online Citation Machines These websites support you in creating citations, but they are not as comprehensive as our new NoodleTools resource.
- Son of Citation Machine – You plug in all of your citation information, so this site is more often accurate. You still need to double check your citation against a citation guide.
- Easy Bib – This site makes some mistakes because it is more automatic. Make sure to check your citation before adding it to your bibliography.
- NoodleTools Lite – The full NoodleTools is a paid for resource, but you can sign up for and use Lite for free. It requires creating an account.
