There are several options available for help with creating an APA reference list.

Web Sites that Format References for You

  • EndNote Basic - format bibliographies in over 1,000 formats; Cite While You Write add-on for Microsoft Word available (EndNote Basic Guide for help)
  • BibMe - free automatic citation creator that supports MLA, APA, Chicago, and Turabian formatting
  • EasyBib - free for MLA format, APA and Chicago styles require a subscription
  • NoodleBib Express - free version is good for one or two quick citations and not an entire source list
  • Son of Citation Machine - helps automatically format references - MLA, APA, Chicago, and Turabian formats supported

We have a guide that provides links to APA help, as well as information about citing correctly.

Formatted Search Results

  • For books, the Library Catalog has a "Cite This Item" choice.
  • For books we do not have in the Library Catalog, WorldCat, a library catalog of North American and some European libraries has a "Cite" feature.
  • Both CINAHL and Ovid Medline have a choice to print/email/or save (export) in APA format.
