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!
