Many library databases and article collections, plus many electronic books, will create citations for whichever article or chapter you are viewing. Tip: Make sure you double-check the citation is correct.
Look for a "Cite This" or "Citation" button on the record for the article or chapter you are viewing. Not all databases have this feature (LexisNexis does not).
1. Run a search in the library's EbscoHost, ProQuest, or CQ Researcher databases.
2. From the list of results, click the title for an article that looks interesting.
3. Look for a "Cite This" button or icon.
4. You’ll see a collection of references for this article in different formats. Find the format you need, for example, APA or Chicago or MLA. Copy the citation and paste it into a list of potential citations.
