Creating Citations

  • All articles in the recommended databases will create the citation for you. Look at the bottom of the article for the "MLA Citation".
  • KnightCite will create citations for you if you look up the title of a book or article.  HOWEVER, you should always double check if the citation is complete.
  • Purdue OWL explains how to create citations for all kinds of sources
Make sure you create your citations in MLA style!

Determining Reliability

Use the CRAAP test to decide if a source is reliable:
