Citing Your Sources
Citations can sometimes be tricky, but KnightCite is a superb tool to build your citation skills.
We strongly recommend KnightCite for some simple reasons:
- Create accurate and updated citations
- They provide a free account to store all of your citations
- Keep track of all of your project resources (for multiple classes)
- Export a properly formatted citation sheet (alphabetized and formatted for you!)
Yes, there are other citation generators out there, but they do not encourage thoughtful habits. Use KnightCite!

- Date of creation or publication
- Publisher (print resources)
- Publication city (print resources)
- URL (websites)
- Date you found it (online resources)
