EasyBib

So, I’ve been hunting around on the Internet for Web sites that are going to make my life easier once I start college. During my search, I stumbled upon this Web site and I love it! Today, I’m bringing you a free automated bibliography composer.

If you visit the About Us section, you’ll learn all about why this site exists and what a blessing it is for anyone who needs to compose a bibliography after writing a paper.

There are over 50 ways to make a citation on your bibliography and it can be incredibly confusing to pick which one to use. Once relegated to safe options like books and encyclopedias, with EasyBib, you will feel comfortable looking for other sources of information and being able to cite them properly.

So, how does it work? It’s simple really! You select your source from the drop down menu and in the next drop down menu, you choose whether you found it in print or online. Then just click the Next button.

You are then given a form. Fill it out to the best of your ability. For example, pretend you had to write a piece on your favorite comic strip. Your citation would look something like this once you filled out the form (depending on what your favorite comic strip is). Simply provide the Web site’s name, URL, author, etc.:

Shinga. “Head Trip.” Comic Strip. Head Trip. 06 July 2006. 30 June 2008 <http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20060706.html&gt;.

That’s just one of the many ways you can use this Web site to cite your research.

It’s so easy! You just take the information you have, type it in and voila, the site does the work for you. I know this one is going in my bookmarks. How about you?!
